Product description
A significant cross-section of contemporary Quakers met for an intensive weekend with a clear wish to explore their longing for a revitalised Religious Society of Friends. In the process they rediscovered some of the enthusiasm and fire that early Friends knew. This booklet is their journey. At first a quest brings more questions. What begins the process of change? Does that imply change has started? Is our discomfort with the way things are enough to prompt us into new commitments? Have we sufficient strength for the pain of transformation? Will our vibrancy sustain us? We may long for the Society to go WHOOSH! There are signs it might. How do we equip ourselves to be ready? 'Visioning new fire' is a record of the five talks, the choice of workshops, the evening's cantata and the focusing in sessions of deep threshing. These became the dynamic to create the epistle, the minutes and lighting the touch-paper as the corporate commitment to new destinations. This booklet aims to be both challenge and provocation for robust discussion throughout the Quaker community.
