Robin M: Help Wanted 2010

Robin M: Help Wanted 2010. Will all these institutions survive this once in a lifetime mass shift in leadership? How many will move in new and vibrant directions? Are there too many openings at one time? Are there enough younger Friends who are ready, willing and able to take on new responsibilities? To take on the hard work and hard choices? To commit?

Ashley W on a summer spent released for ministry

Friendly Mama: Simplicity

Friendly Mama: Simplicity. We were told we would each be giving two five minute talks about one of the Quaker Testimonies; the first talk would be about how I came to that Testimony and the second was to be how my life reflects that testimony now.

An Argument for Comprehensive Religious Ed

Joyce Ketterer, in Quaker Theology: When, at age 19, as an already avowed Quaker, I finally learned that much of that information was outright false I felt deeply betrayed... Despite intensive Quaker experience at the monthly and yearly meeting levels as well as through Friends General Conference, I was failed by the Quaker adults in charge of my religious education.
