We are happy to tell F/friends about an exciting international Quaker event directed towards Russian youth, namely, the bilingual publication of the popular Friends General Conference children's book, Lighting Candles in the Dark. This is a collection of 31 true stories based on the basic human values of non-violence, kindness, love, fairness, service, and care of the earth.
This project is the current focus of the Friends International Library which is a joint effort of Friends United Meeting, Friends General Conference Publications Committee and the Quaker FSU (Former Soviet Union) Committee.
Lighting Candles in the Dark will be the newest addition to The Friends International Library. Six translated books of Quaker literature are currently available to Russian seekers.
