The publication God, words and us, edited by Helen Rowlands, and sent to all Meetings in Britain, is comprised of different sections:

  • Telling our individual stories, remembering to bring our whole selves (rational, emotional and spiritual) to the conversation.
  • Sharing experience of core Quaker practice, followed by the language of ‘theism’ and ‘nontheism’ that is potentially controversial and divisive.
  • Concluding with reframing the issues, final statements from the participating group, glossary of terms and further reading.
