What is important to Quakers around the world? How do Friends approach the challenges of our testimonies in their different situations? What are the Quaker views of Jesus Christ, of worship, of the rich variety of humanity, and of the world family of Friends itself? Extracts from the Books of Discipline of 24 Quaker yearly meetings around the world are presented here together with Queries on them for group and personal study.
“This book was originally written as preparation material for the World Gathering of Young Friends 2005 in Lancaster, United Kingdom, but with the intention of being useful to all Quakers and others around the world. Many Quakers are aware of their own thinking, but too often they don’t know there are Quakers in other parts of the world at all, let alone what they think and believe about key issues. This book seeks to address that problem.” —Simon James Gray
