Simon Latham of Telford PM welcomes the stranger at Church Stretton Local Meeting

  • However, as the evening approached, I became quite apprehensive as I realised that having been an attender for just three years, I don't often speak in public about my Quaker perspectives
  • Just as Friends are encouraged to come to Meeting for Worship with heart and mind prepared, I felt at a loss, as it was difficult to know what sort of questions I would have to answer
