IYM 2022 Public Lecture

‘Embodying the Quaker Testimonies in Service of a Living Planet: The Challenge of Asking Beautiful Questions’ was the title of this year’s public lecture, which took place on 12th August during Ireland Yearly Meeting 2022 at Stranmillis College, Belfast .

Quaker illustrator, editor and environmental consultant, Lynn Finnegan, delivered an inspiring and challenging lecture on the topic.

She encouraged us to be guided by the divine Inner Light and the Quaker Testimonies of peace, justice, truth, equality and simplicity, which she described as anchors to live by.

Lynn challenged us to each find our own way to love the Earth, reminding us that faith and action nourish each other.

She also asked us to consider whether surrendering ourselves to the way of Love might, perhaps, be our spiritual gift to the environmental movement.
