June/July 2013: Quaker Testimonies
On the occasion of this, our issue focusing on what have been called “the Quaker testimonies,” I pause to reflect on how radical the Quaker faith is, and how rich our conversation. The topic of “testimonies” hits the sweet spot for Friends Journal. Our stock in trade, after all, is language; it’s how Friends give voice to the inner workings of Spirit. And what are the testimonies if not a linguistic shorthand for a shared spiritual experience? The concept of testimonies is one readers of Friends Journal have seen discussed, often without further explanation, many times in our pages.
