Quaker Peace Testimony Reader

Here is the download the handout we used last Sunday – Readings on various Quaker testimonies of peace. It is made up of a number of quotes from Jesus, to Quakers and includes a number of peace testimonies from differing Yearly Meetings (though many are not represented here, it is just a small sample).

Questions to be used with the handout:

  • What according to this statement is peace? How might this connect to the author’s understanding of God? How does it relate to your understanding of God?
  • What are connections you can draw to other things we’ve discussed or you have been learning about recently?
  • Following this statement, how might you respond, in ways big or small, to Christ’s call to love God and others.
  • What would you like to learn more about?
