Is there anything Quakers today can say as one? We can proclaim this – there is a living God at centre of all, who is available to each of us as a Present Teacher at the very heart of our lives.
- World Gathering of Young Friends 1985
Quaker … “concerns” are usually personal, tested by Meetings at different levels, and often lead to specific action. “Testimonies” are more widely shared and accepted, and the sort of action they lead to should affect our whole lives. The essential quality of both is an inner compulsion, not something you decide on after reading or hearing about it. They have that quality of Luther’s famous statement “here I stand, I cannot do otherwise”.
- Tim Brown 2002

Gathered - Quaker Poetry Anthology
Gathered: Contemporary Quaker Poets, the first anthology of its kind, seeks to give the best Quaker poets writing today a voice in contemporary letters. Many anthologies of writing from other spiritual traditions have been published in recent years, and this Quaker collection will be an important addition to the conversation. The poets presented in Gathered come from all points on the Quaker cultural spectrum. There are Quakers from all over the United States and Quakers from abroad. There are liberal Quakers and conservative Quakers. There are lifelong Quakers, Quakers from hybrid spiritual backgrounds, and those who were once part of Quaker society but have since moved on down other paths.
