Ireland Yearly Meeting 2000 Public Lecture

On Friday 28 April, 2000 Janet Scott delivered the Ireland Yearly Meeting Public Lecture. She talked about Hope from First Corinthians 13, verse 13. "There are three things that last forever: faith, hope and love". Faith and Love have frequently been spoken about but Hope has been more neglected. The talk explores the connection between Quaker Testimonies and the kingdom of God.
