French Yearly Meeting 2021: Epistle

The 2021 assembly of Quakers in France took place in the “La Solitude” spiritual centre near Bordeaux from October 29th to November 1st. In their epistle, French Friends write of a “joyful and inspirational” weekend, “surrounded by a sea of vineyards.
We took as our challenge ‘How to advance our aims and beliefs in such a needy world,'” they add. “The vineyards reminded us that France is the third exporter of wine in the world, but also the third exporter of arms. We have work to do.
