Key aspects of Margaret Fell's thinking

Key aspects of Margaret Fell's thinking

This video reflects on the Margaret Fell passage we have been studying.

It unpicks the main points she is raising in this account of her experience in Ulverston Church and contrasts this passage with those we have looked at from George Fox and Francis Howgill. All are accounts written many years after the events they describe.

How convincing do you find these accounts? Why were they written? How reliable might they be? How do you personally find the Margaret Fell passage? Is it for example inspiring or discomforting? Both?

Post your reflections in the comments section.
