QuakerSpeak, January 2022

Have you seen the one with Friend Chris Stern sharing his experience of reading the journal of George Fox as a young adult? It was during a time of spiritual confusion for him and Fox’s words became a source of comfort.

“I thought that to be a good Quaker I had to be A, B, C, D, and if I couldn’t do those things maybe I wasn’t a good Quaker. My journey through the years and through reading the early journals, it’s all taught me that it’s not up to me at all—my primary goal is to be open to being led by a power greater than myself.”

—Chris Stern, member of Middletown Meeting in Lima, Pa.
