The November newsletter with our latest news, book reviews, details of the 2019 conference, short articles as well as news from nontheist Friends in America has now been added to the website.
NFN members and others who have signed up to receive this will have had it in their email a week or so ago.
As with all the other newsletters, please see under ‘Articles – Newsletters’ above.
Members of the Network will have received the April newsletter with reflections on the 2018 Conference by email. After a little delay, the pdf version has now been added here with a slight re-structuring of the articles/newsletters pages.
The Newsletter might be read in conjunction with the 2018 Conference reports in the previous post.
The December newsletter has finally found its way onto the website! Thanks David Parlett for another interesting issue.
‘God, words and us‘ is the title of a new 100 page book from Quaker books, edited by Helen Rowlands which summarises the findings of the ‘think-tank’ set up by the Revision Preparation Group (RPG) of Meeting for Sufferings to consider some of the issues prior to any possible revision of Quaker Faith and Practice.
NFN’s David Boulton and Michael Wright were part of the think-tank in a personal capacity (ie. Not representing NFN).
Here they offer a synopsis of the new book (Michael Wright) (pdf) and a succinct review (David Boulton) (Word.doc).
David will be one of our three speakers at our 2018 conference and Michael Wright will lead a discussion of the book at the conference on the Sunday morning.
You may also like to read what Rhiannon Grant, another member of the think-tank, and I believe the ‘RPG’?, has to say about ‘God, words and us‘. (I have used a link which also gives some bonus items from her blog!)
By an oversight (or lack of it?) the newsletters for December, January and February have only been added to the website today.
The December newsletter is near the foot of the ‘Articles’ page (with earlier newsletters) but for 2017, the January and February newsletters have been added to a separate page in the ‘Articles’ sub-menu.
I have not (as yet) put them as a sub-page to ‘News’ which currently carries ‘posts’ to the website for technical reasons. I hope some posts by other members of our steering group may appear soon.
The next newsletter will probably be ‘April’ with further reports of our March conference. In the meantime see the text of Rhiannon’s talk in the previous post.
