What is Quaker Faith & Podcast?Quaker Faith & Podcast is a conversation about different aspects of Quaker faith & practice. We talk about what Quakers believe now and how we got here from the 1600s. We aim to go more in-depth than leaving it at statements like "we believe in peace."
Why are we podcasting?Most Quakers today were not raised Quakers. In Britain, that’s as high as 87%! That’s a lot of religion education to pick up, and smaller meetings often have trouble providing education for the full learning curve from newcomer to seasoned Quaker. We hope to make it easier to learn what Quakers believe.
Plus, there’s a lot of variation in Quakers. Education can help us steer away from thinking “those other kinds of Quakers aren’t real Quakers.”
