Welcome to Life in 361˚. This blog is an 'open journal' - a space where I keep notes on bits & pieces I come across day-to-day - including books and articles I've read that I feel are worth sharing, interesting pictures and photos (I'm a visual learner, you see), random musings - and anything else that happens to catch my eye or ear. It also acts as a kind of 'open experiment' in terms of developing my views and writing skills - and networking with other people of a like-mind.

If you've stumbled upon here randomly, then I suggest you check out my biography and other pages.

What's the story?

I mentioned last week that a senior Quaker was invited to speak to the Annual Meeting for Unitarians & Free Christians in Britain. The full text of the address can be accessed here. I think it is a pretty robust explanation, and questioning, of liberal (Christian) religion. 

You may also note that, for all their liberalism, 1) British Quakers very much still 'do God', they believe the Divine is at work within their community 2) British Quakers have a strong sense of their history & their continuing mission - they have a shared narrative of which they are each part.

I think Unitarians & Free Christians in Britain have to ask, what's our story?
