​This week on Tapestry, the recording clerk for British Quakers says the Quakers are looking to redefine what it means to believe in God — because the faith doesn't tell you what to believe.

Then take a tour of sacred books in the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library with Pearce Carefoote, an Anglican priest and head of the Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library in Toronto. He shares the stories attached to some of the oldest texts in their collection of over 800,000 books.
