What if the facts on which we base our lives are shown to be unreliable?
Be the first to review this product
What if the facts on which we base our lives are shown to be unreliable? What if our expectations are confounded? What if we let go of those assumptions and expectations? What if we let go of our familiar, habitual ways of thinking? What if we let go of the very need to know? Unknowing is at the centre of spiritual life. It is only by creating a space in which anything can happen that we allow God to speak; only by stepping back that we allow space for that unpredictable Spirit that brings us gifts beyond any of our imaginings..."God dwells only where man steps back to give him room."

Living Our Beliefs: An Exploration of the faith and practice of Quakers
"Many of us have experienced Quaker meeting for worship on a hill, in a hotel lobby, under the stars; it is often on these occasions, with others, that the silence can surprise, and the Spirit can burn even more brightly."
Quaker faith and practice 5th edition PB
This book of Quaker faith and practice is an attempt to express Truth through the vital personal and corporate experience of Friends. It is largely composed of extracts: a fitting way of expressing the breadth of Quaker theology.
