Quaker Ranter Talk #1: Talking about Friends

How do we talk to seekers who may have a lot of wrong sterotypes about Friends? How does our insider jargon create confusion and what is the state of the communities we're inviting them into. With QuakerQuaker editors Martin Kelley and C. Wess Daniels.

I'd suggest that when Quakers do outreach we talk less about ourselves (our schisms, our organizations, our oddities or lack thereof, etc.) and more about God. George Fox did not have a message about Quakerism. He had a message about (and from) God and Christ.
