Quaker Quaker

Ever since the founding of the Religious Society of Friends in the mid-17th century, Quakers had been prolific producers of the written word. The pamphlets of previous centuries have now given way to blogs, vlogs, and podcasts. Quaker Quaker is the Grand Central Station of the Quaker blogosphere, bringing together differing viewpoints and interpretations from across the Quaker universe.
