Abstract:

"When someone asks me what kind of Christian I am," says author and Quaker, J. Brent Bill, "I say I'm a bad one." His book, Life Lessons from a Bad Quaker, is an invitation to a more meaningful and satisfying life to all who are bad at being good. Although the Quaker lifestyle is characterized by the qualities of peace, solitude, and simplicity, Bill explains that, while he's got the belief part down, it's in the practice of it in his everyday life where he runs into trouble -- and he knows he's not alone. Use the complementary and downloadable study guide to help the members of your small group joyfully explore the idea that perfection is not required as they stumble along the path of their faith journey.
