What role can nontheism play in a religious society?

Event: Sat 28 October 28 1300-1630, Redland Meeting House, Bristol

How does a nontheist Quaker perspective impact on worship, ministry, Quaker practice and outreach? When Quakers talk of ‘that of God in everyone’ or ‘seeking God’s will’ what can that mean mean to a nontheist? What contribution can nontheist Friends make to any revision of Quaker Faith & Practice?

Our unity is based on a shared practice of worship, not on our beliefs all being the same. There is no need to be in unity with Quakers on every issue in order to be part of our meetings.

These are some of the questions that will be discussed in a spirit of worship sharing in the first of what the Non-theist Friends Network (NFN) hopes will be a new series of regional conferences in major cities across Britain. It is open to Friends of all theological persuasions. Members and non-members of NFN are all welcome.
