First, I want to let everyone know that anything I say regarding Quakerism is only MY experience, MY understanding and MY views.
I will over simplify things. I will make generic statements. I will probably offend. The reason for this is Quakerism is such a broad spectrum.
Whenever I want to write anything pertaining to the RSoF I am stunted into silence. I don’t want to, and cannot, fill every post with disclaimers and apologies. I spend more time thinking about what gets capitalized then content! I think this is why there is so little known about Quakers. A lot of people are afraid to speak for themselves.
If you are discovering Quakers you should know I am not a Quaker ambassador. There is no Quaker ambassador. If someone represents themselves as such you should run screaming in the other direction.
Quakerism is, and has always been, about people searching. First you Seek, then you become Convinced. Feel free to ask me questions though, (use the ask me anything link!) and I will do my best to point you to the best information.
Quick Quaker Key
RSof = Religious Society of Friends (Quakers!)
F/friends = Friends are fellow Quakers, friends are you buddies, F/friends are Quakers who are also your friends.
Meeting House = Quaker version of church
Meeting = Quaker congeration
I will add more as I use them. Thanks!
Now, with that being said, I hope I have allowed myself to speak freely.
