QuakerSpeak, October 2021

Have you seen the one with five Friends discussing their favorite words and phrases from Quaker vocabulary? Carl Magruder, Sarah Katreen Hoggatt, Jennifer Higgins-Newman, Cai Quirk, and Anthony Kirk share which ones have powerful spiritual resonance for them.

“One Quaker term that I am finding joyful in my life right now is saying ‘that Friend speaks my mind’ or ‘that Friend has spoken my mind.’ . . . I think it helps us as a community get a sense . . . that we can tether ourselves or knit ourselves to each other, like ‘oh yeah, that’s me, too’ or ‘that is what Spirit is calling me to, too.’”

—Jennifer Higgins-Newman, member of Beacon Hill Meeting in Boston, Mass.
