Book Project – Finding Christ in the Quaker Church: The Not-So-Peculiar Stories of Young Friends

This is a call for essays to contribute to a “collective memoir” for young adults (age 40 and under) whose pursuit of Christ has led them to the Quaker (Friends) church. Essays should be narrated life stories depicting an aspect of one’s unique journey to/journey within the Friends church. Questions to help further clarify your proposal might be:

-       Why were you originally attracted to the Friends church?

-       What experiences have solidified your commitment to the Quaker church?

-       How have you lived out your Quaker values in the world? Your community? Your family?

-       If you could tell your story of growing up Quaker, or of coming to the Quaker church, how would you tell it?

-       What would you want non-Quakers to know about the Quaker church?

-       What would you want “more mature” Quakers to know about your commitment to the Quaker church?

These essays should focus more on experiences than exposition, more on story than theory.

Who can submit? Anyone under 40 years old whose pursuit of Christ has led them to/taken root in the Quaker (Friends) church.

What is the length of submission? Submissions should be between 1,500 and 3,000 words

Submission Date: July 1, 2011

Contact information: Jamie Johnson, jejohnson@georgefox.edu

Submissions should be the author’s original work and previously unpublished.
