Courses and study resources

 

Responding to Ecological Crisis: Quaker Spiritual Insights 

Woodbrooke has produced a set of study materials using Quaker spiritual insights to help Friends reflect on, and discern their responses to the developing ecological crisis. The online course ran from October to November 2021. The materials do not propose specific solutions or actions. Instead, they aim to help you to reflect on this issue, and discern what spirit-led responses are required at this time.The course materials are available and Meetings can contact the CESEWG to access them.
