QuakerQuaker This Week, 2/16/2012

The most interesting conversations this week have been generated by Maggie Harrison's controversial broadside “YOU ARE NOT A QUAKER (so please stop calling yourself one).” Jon Watts has compiled some of the best responses in a Quaker Bloggers Respond wrap-up that's well worth reading.

  • The Australian Friend is now online at AustralianFriend.org, as AYM agreed during Yearly Meeting in January 2012 in Perth. quaker australia books

    For almost 200 years, we've been squabbling about who the real Quakers are. We've all headed off in high dudgeon to our various fortresses, currently named FGC, FUM, EFI and (Conservative), from which we occasionally sally forth to mingle with Them. quaker
