September 2 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pmSuggested Donation
Join Wess Daniels on Wednesday, September 3rd from 7 pm to 8 pm for a virtual Zoom presentation.
Resisting Empire is a series Wess Daniels has been developing since long before the release of his first book, “Resisting Empire: The Book of Revelation as Resistance” (2019 – Barclay Press). Since that publication, Wess has been working applying lessons from that previous project to Quaker movement and what Quaker practice looks like today. In this presentation, Wess will unpack the importance of seeing how various liturgies shape us and lay groundwork for Quakers to consider ways of resisting empire today.
