‘As Quakers we are compelled by our faith, and its translation into practice, to take responsibility for the governance of our country. We cannot blindly accept things as they are but question, and keep alert to and questioning of the way decisions are made and enacted.
So we encourage our politicians to respond to problems of injustice, suffering, oppression and ignorance, where they exist, in search of a more peaceful and equal society. We challenge them to remove those destructive attitudes that conceal us from one another; compassion should flow ‘like a river and righteousness like a never-failing torrent’. (Amos: 5.24)’
The Wales We Want
Our Wales Focus Group is active in exploring the issues which are relevant today, here, in Wales.
We do not need to be afraid of the dark, because God is there. The future of this earth need not be in the hands of the world’s “leaders”. The world is in God’s hands if we are led by God. Let us be led by the Spirit. Let us walk with a smile into the dark.’ (Qf&p 29.01).
Back in 2016 The Wales Focus Group of Meeting of Friends in Wales prepared a message to all Wales Assembly election candidates and others.
