Exploring Quaker Business Method

27 July 2022, Online

Are there bits of how Quakers do business that you don't understand? Do you have questions you never quite get chance to ask? 'Exploring Quaker Business Method' looks at the different responsibilities that Clerks, Elders and Pastoral Carers take on, as well as the roles of every member and attender in the meeting.

Quaker Business Method is sited by many as the reason they became a member of the Religious Society of Friends. Starkly different to more mainstream decision-making processes, Quaker Business Method is unique in the patience and depth of consideration members are required to find.

We will unpack Quaker phrases and practices like discernment, finding the sense of the meeting, and the role of ministry.

This session is not just for new Friends, it is valuable to Quakers, seasoned and not, to invest time in consideration of what could be regarded as basic practices in order for us to keep working smoothly as a community, and to be the change we want to see in the world.
