Lessons on outreach from British Friends

Quakers on the tube

I was scheduled to have a blog post go up on the QuakerYouth blog last week, and since it happened to be the start of National Quaker Week in the UK (and apparently Australia too), I decided to write about British Friends. Emily was on vacation in NC though and didn’t post it in time, but if you can turn you mental clock back a week or two, here’s the link to Lessons on outreach from British Friends.

    Your quaker.org.uk link doesn’t work.

    The ads on the tube seem like a wonderful, non-intrusive way of informing the public. I happen to get immediately turned off when someone shoves a piece of paper in my face on a streetcorner.

    On a side note, I want to say how much I enjoy your blog. It’s been very helpful in my research on Quakers. Thanks!

  • The Quakers are not so blindly attached to antiquity, as to keep to customs, merely because they are of an ancient date. But they are ready, on conviction, to change, alter, and improve.
