This chapter is the first in the calendar to read through.
It contains the following sections:
- Faith in Action
- Corporate Responsibility
- Social Responsibility – poverty and house; slavery; torture; discrimination and disadvantage
- The Individual and the Community – work and economic affairs; education
- Friends and state authority – conscription; crime and punishment
Fifteen passages have the word ‘Light’ in and therefore are part of my current Qf&P journal.
I had already journalled several earlier in the year, but will be contemplating the remaining nine throughout this month. Exploring the chapter through discussion with my groups and reading through some of the other Quaker blog posts as well.
I’m looking forward to the reading, as this isn’t a chapter that is as heavily thumbed as some others – but with 103 passages, plus an afterword this is a full month of reading.
