They testify about their viewpoints on racial justice - both within the Religious Society of Friends and society at large - and they speak of their life in the Spirit. As a collection, these selections exhibit the vitality and wisdom that three centuries of African American Quakers have contributed to and on behalf of Friends.
The Gospel of John is sometimes known among Friends as "the Quaker Gospel," because it speaks to the Quaker concern for a here-and-now experience of eternal reality in Christ.
Conversation with Christ explores this theme through thirteen conversations from the Fourth Gospel in which the history and mystery of Jesus are revealed. Each of these close readings is followed by examples of ways Quakers have grappled with its message and by a guided meditation inviting readers to experience the form Christ takes in our lives.

As a life long seeker of Truth, my arrival at Unity Victoria became a date to always remember. Here, I found the warmth, creative energy of a deeply inclusive community, the guiding principles and teachings of the Fillmores, a spiritual home to live in, grow in and learn to serve. In my last working years, the reward of working with individuals with developmental challenges brought with it openness and flexibility in holding space for varied cultures, ideas and abilities. This lifelong learning has taught me the importance of seeking creative ideas and solutions.
Benedictine Center - Spiritual Retreats
I continue to take classes and appreciate the opportunities and richness of learning, meditating and celebrating in groups that Unity provides. I am particularly drawn to metaphysical classes and learning new meditations. Celebrating connection, with my family, friends, and in nature brings me great joy.
I do this through my love of gardening, bird-watching, mushrooming, and, as some may know, I am a passionate foodie. I was a school teacher for thirty six years in Victoria. I thought that their philosophy was very much like mine and I knew Rev Doris Lewis. Unity turned out to be a good fit for me. I am very fortunate since I was born into New Thought.
The principles that I learned have certainly guided me all my life. I would like to offer spiritual support. I like to read metaphysical books, fiction novels and walk along the waterfront. I have two wonderful children and a terrific granddaughter. Paul Turmel, Member at Large. Website by: OneEach Technologies.
Charlane Simpson, Treasurer My introduction to Unity Victoria came in where I listened intently to a Sunday Service where the topic of self-discovery was explored with humour and enlightenment. I am a mother of two - with my son living in Victoria with his wife, and my daughter living in England with her husband and two children. I have worked in the printing and graphic arts industry; in concert services; as a skating instructor in Calgary schools; and, as a salesperson and designer in glass, cabinetry and window coverings.
