Reflections on the 2014 Swarthmore LectuBeing honest about the stories we tell:

Mark Russ on the stories in our Quaker theologies:

A story incomplete: Virginia Alexander's life among Friends:

Gordon Ferguson writes of pickets at London’s Friend House:

There is a world of difference between being nice to people and treating them equally, and at the end of the day Friends House Hospitality are merely ‘unprofitable servants’ doing their duty by by law and good practice.

From the Malachut blog:

They needed no building except for that temple they built as their hearts joined in the union of silence.A meeting for worship has some versatility it can be done anywhere a park,a waterfall,a bus,a subway etc
