Glossary of Quaker terms used in the episode:

Children’s Meeting - Sessions run specifically for children at Meetings for Worship.

“Early in my life with Friends, I overheard…” - New Light: 12 Quaker Voices, 2008, ed. Jennifer Kavanagh.

“If you allow me to have Christ…” - 26:47 Quaker Faith & Practice, 5th ed.  

The “Light” - A term often used by Quakers to describe or identify the Divine or God, or the goodness within all humans. Also known as the “Inward Light”, it can be a metaphor used more broadly for spiritual experience, the spirit within us, or divine love.

Meeting for Sufferings - The central body responsible for running the national business of Quakers in Britain. It also decides the priorities and sets the direction of Yearly Meeting.

Meeting for Worship, or “Meeting” - One of the central ways that Quakers worship. British Quakers gather together in silence but anyone present can speak if strongly moved to; there are no set hymns, prayers, sermons, ministers, or creeds.

New Light: 12 Quaker Voices - A book collating 12 different Quakers’ opinions on various subjects, such as the peace testimony, God, and equality. Published 2008, ed. Jennifer Kavanagh.

Quaker Faith and Practice - The central Quaker text, and an attempt to express truth through the vital personal and corporate experience of Quakers. Read it here:

Testimonies - Quakers don’t have a fixed creed but Quaker faith springs from a deeply held belief in living our lives according to our spiritual experience. Quaker testimonies are the expression of our spirituality in action. There are five key testimonies integral to Quaker faith: simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality.

YFGM Coordinator - The organiser of Young Friends General Meeting, currently Gabriel Cabrera.

Yearly Meeting - Yearly Meeting is an organisation and a gathering held for Quaker members and attenders once a year. Yearly Meeting works to reflect on current concerns within the community and receives reports from Yearly Meeting Trustees, Meeting for Sufferings and other committees.
