Description

"What do Quakers believe?" It's a hard question for a lot of Quakers to answer, but we're going to try. We'll talk about beliefs early Quakers took for granted and how modern Quakers unite with or deviate from them. Hopefully, listeners will learn to appreciate the variety found in Quakerism and the religious roots of so many of our "pecularities."

Episode 1

A very wonderful and thought provoking discussion about Quaker beliefs and theology. I recommend this pod cast for anyone wanting to learn more about Quakers or the Quaker faith.

Pretty Good

History, not contemporary Quakerism

This podcast is a (frequently hair-splitting) discussion of topics that are often only of historical interest; it's not a good introduction to Quakerism as it's practiced day to day in the US or Britain today.

I'm afraid I lost the will to live, or anyhow to listen, when the discussion plunged into Old Testament agreements between God and humanity and hair coverings for women, because for the vast, vast majority of Quakers worldwide such things are utterly irrelevant.

(The practice of hair coverings for women actually feels more like creative anachronism than Quaker practice; Quaker women today do not, overwhelmingly, feel the need to wear little caps, just as Quakers today do not use "thee" and "thou". Most Quakers today feel that these kinds of antiquated outward practices do far more to separate Quakers from other people and alienate outsiders than they do to bespeak important matters of faith.) This is, in short, frequently a backward-looking podcast; there are others that are fine introductions to what modern Quakers care about, believe, and discuss.
