Issue 54: Simple Plan for All-Age Worship

Series 6: More Quaker Stories

The sixth series focuses on exploring more Quaker stories like those explored in series two.

Issue 54: Benjamin Lay

In Burlington Meeting in 1738, Benjamin Lay came in clothed as a soldier with a sword. He detailed the evils of slavery and then pierced a bible with the sword. Concealed in it was a bladder filled with red juice that splattered onto Friends sitting near him, symbolising the blood on Quakers' hands for not standing firm against slavery. This issue includes this story, and another challenging story about Ben’s anti-slavery advocacy.
