Have you seen the one with Friend and author Wess Daniels talking about the origins and meaning of the Book of Revelation? He explains what it can teach Friends today about pushing back against a dominant culture.
“Revelation doesn’t have anything to do with predicting the end of the world. It’s like a handbook for a minority faith community on how to resist empire, and as soon as we see it that way, it totally shifts the usefulness of this book because now it actually is instructive about what it means to stand in opposition to the religion of empire.”
—Wess Daniels (he/him/his), attender of First Friends Meeting in Greensboro, N.C.
—Taylor Brelsford, member of West Knoxville (Tenn.) Meeting
