“Living in Dark Times” by Rex Ambler.

About the Author Rex Ambler is known for his search to experience and understand the Light and the workshops he developed and materials he wrote to share what he discovered. He taught theology for over thirty years at Birmingham University in England and has more recently traveled extensively to teach Quaker meditation, or “Experiment with Light,” helping those interested to set up “light groups” to practice it. See www.experiment-with-light.org.uk. His many publications include Light to Live By: An Exploration in Quaker Spirituality; Seeing, Hearing, Knowing —Reflections on Experiment with Light; The Quaker Way: A Rediscovery; Truth of the Heart (an anthology of the writings of George Fox); and The Light Within: Then and Now (Pendle Hill Pamphlet 425). He has run for Parliament in Britain as a Green Party candidate.


This pamphlet is an edited version of the plenary talk given to Friends General Conference Gathering in Minnesota in July 2016. The theme of the gathering was be humble, Be Faithful, BE BOLD. Rex Ambler gave the talk extemporaneously. A video of the talk is available at the FGC website. This revision is based on the transcript of that recording.
