QuakerSpeak can be a useful tool for your Quaker Meeting. Let us help support your Meeting by stimulating meaningful discussion and helping to communicate with newcomers. Here are a few ways that Meetings are using QuakerSpeak.
1. Discussion Groups
Sometimes called “adult religious education” or “second hour”. QuakerSpeak videos are a quick and simple way to begin a conversation about what matters to us as Friends.
We post a new video every Thursday, so simply subscribe to our weekly emails to get your discussion group up and running!
To jumpstart the conversation, we also offer a few queries for each video. Just click on the bar below any video on our website. Feel free to use ours or create your own!
Don’t have WiFi in your Meetinghouse? Get a DVD here.
2. On The Website
QuakerSpeak videos are an easy way to create a deeper, more meaningful experience for visitors to your Meeting’s website. Here are a few examples of Meetings that are using our videos for this purpose:
- Patapsco Friends Meeting
- Pacific Yearly Meeting
- San Francisco Friends Meeting
- New York Yearly Meeting
- Durango Friends Meeting
- Miami Friends Meeting
