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.

The title, “An Order of Service for Maundy Thursday,” brought back good memories of going with Dad to our Unitarian Universalist church every Thursday before Easter. At the age of 12, he first asked me to read parts from the script with him, which I did. The crowd was often small, but we enjoyed ourselves no matter how many there were.
