SEP 28

Quanglicans, Quagans and More

28 September - 1 November 2021

Many people participate in more than one religious tradition and some individual Quakers also belong to churches, synagogues, meditation groups, Druid groves, and many other religious traditions. In this course we will explore what multiple religious belonging is, different ways it can be understood, and how it might affect Quaker and other communities.

Many people participate in more than one religious tradition – perhaps moving between traditions over the course of their life and/or engaging in more than one practice or community at once.

This possibility is explicitly accepted in Britain Yearly Meeting's book of discipline, where dual membership with other churches is described positively, and some individual Quakers also belong to churches, synagogues, meditation groups, Druid groves, and many other religious traditions.

In this course we will explore what multiple religious belonging is, different ways it can be understood, and how it might affect Quaker and other communities.

We will be accepting of the possibility and the many positive experiences people have but also able to discuss the drawbacks and challenges involved. By the end of the course, you should have a clearer understanding of multiple religious belonging in its many forms, whether or not it is part of your own religious life.

Live sessions are every Tuesday at 19:00-20:30.
