Peace work - preview

Hull Friends and attenders were joined by Friends from other Meetings in the Monthly Meeting and by Hull Christians for Peace for a double event in May

As a memorial to our Friend Ron Huzzard, his sister Dorothy Edwards had commissioned a light for our conservatory and this was the occasion at which she and her husband Donald presented it to us
  • We were delighted that Rosalie and Valerie Huzzard were also present

  • The memorial light is a wall-mounted lantern with coloured glass panels, designed by Martin Valatin and made by Judith Maxwell, attenders at Bradford-on-Avon Meeting
  • Martin outlined the thoughts which underlay the design, taking as its central theme Christian witness to the Word and Light of God from its origins to the present: from inner inspiration to active engagement in the world Truth to Power over time and space
  • It incorporates a mosaic based on an Anglo-Saxon cross found locally, surrounded by the opening text of Tyndales translation of the gospel of John, with other relevant phrases

  • Theo Tulley
