FJ Interview with Eric Moon

Eric Moon is the author of “Categorically Not the Testimonies” in the June/July 2013 issue of Friends Journal. In our interview, he talks about the evolution of the modern testimonies and how they simultaneously inspire and limit us.

Bonus material: 

In the article, Eric talks about a survey he has workshop participants conduct at Quaker gatherings. They poll people in meal lines to give a one‐word answer to the statement “Testimonies are important because they are ___.” We loved it so much that we asked our Facebook and Twitter followers to give their answers. Here’s the word cloud they generated!



Eric Moon is a member of Berkeley (Calif.) Meeting and a staff person for the Western Region of the American Friends Service Committee.
