Articles

This section offers a selection of reflective articles written by Quakers in Kent, and with some bearing on their spiritual beliefs. The thoughts, opinions and views expressed in each article are those of the writer, and do not purport to be the opinions of The Religious Society of Friends, its Meetings, or even of any other Quakers.  They are intended to be thought-provoking but not gratuitously provocative. They are not intended to be offensive, although there is no guarantee that some of what is written won’t offend. The articles are offered in the spirit of ‘searching for the light’. The articles are visible to anyone who visits this website.

If an article ‘speaks to your condition’, you might consider adding a comment about this in the comments box below. If an article irritates you, and you are able to express the reason for your irritation, please feel free to do so in the comments box below. Feedback and discussion are welcomed. All comments are ‘moderated’, which means that the comment will not be publicly visible until it has been vetted to remove spam and abuse. The moderated comments are visible to anyone who visits this website.
The broad Quaker attitude to the written word regarding spirituality is of ongoing ‘revelation’. By contributing to discussion of these articles, you will be participating in that ongoing revelation. If you wish to submit an article you have written, please contact the Web Manager. It matters little whether you wrote the article recently or a while ago.
If, instead of writing an article, you you would prefer to engage in discussion about some issue, then visit the Local Meeting forum section of this website relating to your Local Meeting. Each Local Meeting forum section is private to the Local Meeting, and is not visible to the wider public.
