Through the Ages, a bit about the calendars topic

This calendar is compiled by Ann Warren, using contributions by members of the Quaker Tapestry Publications Committee. The 2019 chosen topic is ‘Through the Ages’.

Quakers have often been uneasy about the status quo and determined to enact change for a better world. They have valued religious and personal freedom with strong involvement in campaigning against the slave trade, against repressive prison conditions and war. They have supported and championed education for all, especially the inculcation of social and moral values. These in turn led them to behave with honesty and integrity in the fields of banking, industry and commerce. Being unable to go to university until relatively recently they put their considerable energies into innovative and practical enterprises. They treated their employees well and were rewarded with loyalty and industry. The tolerance of different societal norms whether, for instance, with regard to marriage (especially before recent legislation) or conscientious objection to war, still to some extent, stands them apart. Despite this, throughout the world Quakers continue to work for peace, justice and reconciliation.

 

“If you do nothing else in Kendal visit this exhibition.

It is a wonderful lesson about Quaker beliefs and their achievements in many walks of life from banking, to business, to industry, science and their humanitarian work throughout the world.”
