Dear QuakerSpeak viewer,
It was 5 years ago that the team here at Friends Journal began to prepare for the launch of a new project: short videos, posted weekly, that would allow Friends to explore their Quaker faith and seekers to discover it.
You can still find our very first video, “How Quakerism Began,” at the link on your screen.
Since that first video in early 2014, the QuakerSpeak project has produced 190 weekly videos. And as of last month, those videos have been watched more than 2 million times.
As we wrap up Season 5 of the project and start getting ready for the launch of Season 6 next March, we wanted to say thanks to you, our audience. Whether you just discovered us or you’ve been following along since the beginning, we have you to thank for watching and spreading the word about QuakerSpeak.
Every week, the staff here at Friends Journal gathers to screen and critique the new QuakerSpeak video before the final cut goes live. After 5 years, we thought it would be cool to put together a list of some of the most memorable videos that stood out for us as Friends Journal staff.
Go to QuakerSpeak.com/staffpicks to see our favorites.
What Do Quakers Believe? It’s the most common question that newcomers have about us, and it’s the question that we set out to answer in this year’s DVD. We put together a curated set of 8 short videos about Quaker beliefs and theology, priced affordably so you can share them liberally with people you know who might be curious..
Order yours at QuakerSpeak.com/DVD
Finally, we have some special content to release during the offseason to commemorate 5 years of QuakerSpeak. Make sure you’re subscribed so you don’t miss out on those.
That’s at QuakerSpeak.com/Subscribe
