Words from Quaker Faith & Practice:

“Respect the wide diversity among us in our lives and relationships. Refrain from making prejudiced judgments about the life journeys of others. Do you foster the spirit of mutual understanding and forgiveness which our discipleship asks of us? Remember that each one of us is unique, precious, a child of God.”

 

4.00 pm Saturday 19 May  - Etty: the play
at Frenchay Quaker Meeting House, Beckspool Road, Frenchay, BS16 1NT

Etty is a 50-minute play by Susan Stein drawn from the diaries of Etty Hillesum, a sensuous, poetic Jewish woman searching for the meaning of her life – and all life – during the terror of Nazi occupation. In the midst of two separate love affairs, she happens upon prayer, discovers a reality that she calls God, and opens herself up to the power of love that heals and reconciles those around her.  www.ettyplay.org 

“We have just one moral duty: to reclaim large areas of peace in ourselves, more and more peace, and to reflect it towards others. And the more peace there is in us, the more peace there will also be in our troubled world.”

Suggested donation: £10 to cover costs, with refreshments and post-performance discussion to 6 pm.
