Reproclaiming the Everlasting Gospel
Friends may recall Tomasz Kowalski, a Friend from Torun Poland who visited England during 4th and 5th month months of this year. He wished to make contact with Friends here, and approached New Foundation Fellowship. Eventually we met at Bromley Local Meeting in South East London. Following Meeting, Tomasz spoke to us about his work among ex-prisoners in Poland. Later he joined our Gathering in Ripley and spoke of it as a wonderful experience.
Tomasz returned to Poland with the aim of providing a means for those interested in Quaker Christianity to meet, develop their understanding and commitment, and follow the Quaker Way as it is understood within the New Foundation Community. We have recently heard from him again and it seems that despite having to overcome difficulties, he has established a small, but hopefully growing, Meeting within his home town. They meet every 3rd day at 6.p.m. I am sure that we would wish to uphold them, and remember them in our prayers.
Tomasz has prepared a pamphlet setting out the basic history of, and facts about, Quakerism. There seems to be little or no other Quaker literature in Polish available in Poland. I am told that an Australian writer has translated some of the works of George Fox into that language. Any information that Friends can provide regarding Polish Quaker writings would be appreciated.
