Quaker Religious Education Committee leaders comment:
This book and video series “encourages Friends to move beyond a cognitive faith into an experiential, everyday, in-every-way kind of Quaker faith– walking in this world as a Friend. ~ Beth Collea
Amazing work capturing the true essence of Quakerism in words that speak across various experiences— radical, unsettling, real. I like the insistence that talking about it is not the same as experiencing it. ~ Marty Grundy
This is profound, brilliant work. ~ Sita Diehl
