Do Ye Not Know That Ye Are the Temple of God?
What does it mean to be “the temple of God?” Nancy Fennell will lead us in examining this question asked by Paul of the Corinthians (I Cor. 3:16). The two major functions of a temple are to provide a place of worship and to serve under the leadings of God. Fennell explores the role of both individuals and the community in terms of these functions within our meetings. The voices of Quakers past and present are brought to bear on contemporary issues.
