Looking ahead: QUF Blog Topics for May - July

Blog topics for May, June & July

In May through July, we hope our readers will be led to share their personal reflections on several topics.

May 2015 — Quaker universalism and parenting

  • What do we tell our children about the nature of God, the Spirit, the Light?
  • What resources do we use or stories do we tell?
  • How do we interact with our Meetings on these themes for First Day School?

June 2015 — Quaker universalism and intimate relationships
Christians cite the Bible for guidance in the conduct of relationships, including intimate relationships.

  • What do Quaker universalists have to say about intimacy and right conduct?
  • Monogamy? Polyamory? Open relationships? Adultery?
  • The role of sexuality? The nature of marriage? Friendship?

July 2015 — Finding a “common tongue” in Quaker worship
A common tongue by Craig Barnett and the subsequent Comments from Readers suggest that Friends need ways to worship and to give witness across the illusory boundaries between theist and nontheist, religious and secular, and so on.

  • How might this work?
  • What are your personal experiences on either/all sides of this puzzle?
  • What do you do to bridge the gap, either silently or through words and actions?
