  1. Not the best video, but clearly not the worst. While the content was informative the delivery was more than lackluster.

    I would prefer to read the transcript without having to watch the video

  2. Another wonderful contribution to educating us all in weekly, bite-sized chunks. Jon Watts, Friends Journal and all the collaborators of Quaker Speak are doing us a great service – thank you, once again!

    I will be using a Quaker Speak video during a presentation about Quakers to some San Jose middle school students next week – a great way to share more than just my voice on the topic of particular interest to them (Quakers, war and peace). And I have just recommended a friend who is interested in Quakers use Quaker Speak to explore our faith tradition.

  3. Professor Birkel: Please consider doing a presentation on William Edmundson. His journal is most fascinating and he was the first to denounce slavery every in the Quaker community.
