Sunday, Jan. 18, Andy Miller will lead a discussion in Adult First Day School about Robert Barclay, who has been called the first Quaker theologian.

In this work Barclay attempted to explain Friends' theological principles to the King of England and his people. Barclay also proposed that the Friends held beliefs agreeable to scripture, reason and true learning, and that they were peaceful and should not be persecuted.
