QuakerSpeak, March 2024

Season 11 premiered in February with an ensemble video of six perspectives. Throughout his travels last year, Christopher Cuthrell asked Friends to share their thoughts about heaven and the afterlife.

“I believe that heaven is here,” says Rashid Darden (right). “I think it’s with us. I think it’s in a sense something we can’t see and can’t know in our current state. But when our consciousness is elevated, it can be glimpsed.” Similarly Windy Cooler (left) believes that heaven is here on earth in other people: “God is found in each of us, so when we connect with one another fully and with generosity, that is heaven.”
