Modernising Quaker language?

Our next Meeting for Learning is on Sunday 21 October with the intriguing title of Modernising Quaker language? It will start promptly at 10.00am in the Redland Meeting House Library and end at 10.45.

Led by Roger Sturge, this is a follow-up to a MfL in June when we looked at the ‘quaint’ Quaker language we still use today. We discussed examples including saying ‘I hope so’ in Business Meeting instead of ‘yes’, being ‘prevented’ from attending a meeting instead of sending apologies, and having ‘Meeting for Sufferings’.

This second session will focus on whether, and if so how, we should modernise Quaker language such as these examples. It doesn’t matter if you missed the June session – all are welcome.
