HT writes: During our April meeting David Rolfe spoke eloquently about both the history of Quakerism, and its present-day beliefs and practices.
This was a fascinating and thought-provoking talk. It was intriguing for instance to hear that in Quaker business meetings the minutes must be agreed at the end of the meeting, sometimes after a deal of private contemplation.
David told us that Quakerism is a religion, but it is also very much a way of life and a way of looking at the world. He certainly had me thinking very hard. He also answered a host of interested questions.
After the meeting our usual collection for room hire and refreshments was donated to the Red Cross, as David kindly declined expenses.
