By the time you read this I’ll be back in Britain for my equality traveling ministry to share the vision expressed in “Viking Economics: How the Scandinavians got it right and how we can, too.”

In August a number of British Friends volunteered, following my keynote of the Britain Yearly Meeting Gathering, to organize an October tour. They’ve organized venues in both Scotland and England, including bookshops, universities, and Meetinghouses. The tour includes a national gathering of Quaker activists.

Need Access to CPMM's Directory?

Twice a year the Meeting Secretary publishes a comprehensive list of members and attenders and their contact information. This directory is also acccessible via this website under "Documents" in the "Resources" section, but only if you are a member of CPMM and have access to this website with your username and password. If you have access to this website, you will also notice an online directory in the "Community" section of this website and above by clicking on the button "Member Directory". Whereas the directory in the "Resources" section has all members and attenders of CPMM, the online directory in the "Community" section of this website lists only those who are part of the Quaker Cloud. Therefore, it is recommended that you use the directory in the "Resources" section. You can also ontact the Meeting Secretary to obtain a copy, if you don't have access to this website.
