Deep Hospitality: Reflections on Welcome to the Quaker Community

By Rhiannon Grant

Pendle Hill Pamphlet #487 (June 2024)

Price: $7.50


How can we truly welcome others – and ourselves – to the Quaker community? What if offering a deeper hospitality means demolishing the structures we know and rebuilding in new forms? In this pamphlet, Rhiannon Grant reflects on her experience in the British Quaker community, paying particular attention to the dynamics of privilege and oppression, and calls for a more radical form of welcome. This will mean going beyond inviting people to be guests; it means allowing them to be members of the household in order to make our communities more fully inclusive and equitable. She includes some practical and provocative suggestions. Discussion questions are included.
