Vegan Living as Quaker Witness: an introduction
Do the consumption choices we make exemplify our spiritual values and social commitments? Can they lead us toward simpler lives and demonstrate our care for our common planet? More and more people around the world are considering a mostly plant-based diet. Come hear from Friends who are exploring this path and join the discussion.
Three speakers will share with us their stories, followed by a facilitated discussion and questions from the audience.
Groups Fair – Sunday 6 May
Time : 18.00 – 20:30
Venue: Friends House, the Large Meeting House
Come visit us! We will be proudly featuring the new Spring 2018 issue of our newsletter and we will have back issues and assorted items for sale and give away … and no doubt a selection of delicious vegan treats
