Daily Picks from Around the Web

How should I work for peace?

How should I work for peace?:

Secret Quaker explores the options for pacifist action: “It would seem ironic that it is so easy to campaign for peace in a very aggressive way. Shouting down someone who has a different opinion, vilifying an individual because they seem an obvious target or throwing bricks at the police, has never seemed to me as very different from eliminating your opposition in battle.”

Hope and fear for a yearly meeting gathering

Hope and fear for a yearly meeting gathering:

Nancy Thomas feelings ahead of Northwest Yearly Meeting sessions: “Part of my nature as a poet embraces the ambiguity and basks in God’s silence. But that doesn’t work so well when we’re faced with the concrete need to revise Faith and Practice. And the longing to stay together, even in the midst of controversy.”

GFU & transgender

GFU & transgender:

Cherice Bock clears up some confusions on the George Fox University housing controversy and asks for prayers during the upcoming annual sessions.

Olympia Quakers Support Uganda's Underground Railroad

Olympia Quakers Support Uganda's Underground Railroad:

A Seattle radio station interviews one of the people involved in the Friends New Underground Railroad project.

An Interfaith home?

An Interfaith home?:

Charlotte Dando found it among Friends:

It sounds terribly clichéd, but right from attending my first introductory evening on Quakers, I knew I’d found what I was looking for. After so many years feeling like I didn’t quite fit in, suddenly I had a name for the things that I valued.

Quaker Fame

Quaker Fame:

Ashley Wilcox writes about being a minor celebrity in a small denomination:

Few things will throw me off center at a Quaker event faster than when someone knows who I am and I have no idea who they are.  A Friend will introduce me in conversation and the other person’s face will light up. 

Oregan public radio interviews trans student

Oregan public radio interviews trans student:

Jayce, a George Fox student, says he will appeal the ruling.

Vice picks up GFU story in "Hobby Lobby Goes to College"

Vice picks up GFU story in "Hobby Lobby Goes to College":

Vice News’s coverage quotes a George Fox Univ. administrator and the trans*’ student’s mom and lawyer:

The Quaker faith has a long history of pacifism, so it seems like there’s more justification for opposing military recruiters. But the Quaker faith has no history of opposing transgender identity and there’s nothing in the theology about transgender people.
