Welcome to Eastbourne Quakers

In these times of increasing intolerance and deepening divides isn't it refreshing to know there exists

a group of people who do not claim to know the truth, but only seek to find it...

People who don't dismiss other faiths, but are open to being inspired by them...

People who will help you develop your own beliefs, rather than adopt theirs.

EASTBOURNE FRIENDS NEWSLETTER OCTOBER 2018

Advices & Queries No. 27

Live adventurously. When choices arise, do you take the way that offers the fullest opportunity for the use of your gifts in the service of God and the community?

Let your life speak. When decisions have to be made, are you ready to join with others in seeking clearness, asking for God’s guidance and offering counsel to one another?

Daphne Bennett

d. Sept 2nd 2018

Scholar of words and thoughts,

Frail of body and strong of mind

Hidden feelings, masked too

By the endocrine system so

Complex even the doctors

Don’t know what to do

Elegance of dress and

Joyful friend, who I

Shall miss very, very much

We laughed together many

Times over our own frailties

And complexities of mind.

Goodbye brave one,

I will miss you so.

May the light shine

Upon your soul.

Elizabeth T. Jenks
