‘I hope to be able to convey something of the Spirit-empowered fearlessness and radicalism of the early Quaker movement.'
The Quaker Socialist Society (QSS) has announced that this year’s Salter Lecture, usually given at the time of Yearly Meeting, will take place online.
Woodbrooke tutor Stuart Masters will deliver the lecture ‘Creating Heaven on Earth’ on 16 November at 7pm.
Stuart Masters said: ‘I hope to be able to convey something of the Spirit-empowered fearlessness and radicalism of the early Quaker movement, which very nearly turned the world upside-down. We’ll look at how this experience helped shape our social testimonies, and what it has to teach us about sustaining a radical witness to peace and social justice in a hostile world.’
The previously planned Salter Lecture for 2020, with Nozizwe Madlala-Routledge, was going to be part of Yearly Meeting Gathering 2020, but since that event was cancelled, will now take place as part of Yearly Meeting Gathering 2021.
The committee that organises the lecture discerned the format of the Salter event after it was announced that a shortened Yearly Meeting will take place online on 15 November. Tickets can be booked through the QSS website.
