Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
It seems, based on what little I've read about Quakersim, that at an earlier time, Quakerism was much more popular then today. I don't think that we, as humans, have really changed that much. I think that what Quakerism offered in the past is still relevant to today and I know people hungry for it's message & experience. The question seems "how to introduce ourselves in a non-offensive manner" (by offensive I am referring to those religious types who claim your way is totally wrong, thus come join us.)
Imitating and adapting what others are doing, who are successful at growing their churches (without loosing one's Quaker character) seems promising. My list would include:
a glossy magazine like the ones you mention seems like a great idea!
podcasts.... (I love those things).
Great websites with great downloadable material.I belong to the "Becoming Friends" website/teaching tool put on by Woodbroke. It is a great intro to Quakerism.I think QuakerQuaker is great too!!
and.... maybe an old fashion style of outreach... is some sort of public presence. I am imaging a info table, with a tent behind. In the tent, a circle of chairs, that people could sit in to relax, pray, reflect, etc. A Quaker outside would explain nuts n bolts of how to use tent and the practice of "waiting on God". At the table outside, another Quaker could be present to answer questions, pass out a 3 fold pamphlets to those who want one, be a smiling face greeting those passing by. As a back drop, a banner. On the left: some quick read panels about Quaker's Christian roots and the Mystical path. On the right, Quaker's history of social engagement and current day projects.
In Hinduism and Buddhism, the third eye is a symbol of enlightenment. For me the inner Light, is symbolically and functionally the same Light referred to in the word "enlightenment."
