Quaker FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions about Quakerism. I intend this to be both a place where people can find very brief answers to questions they may have about the Society of Friends and an easy way for those with little background in Quakerism to find QuakerInfo articles which may be of particular interest to them. For many of the questions, there will be 1-3 sentences giving summary answers plus links to relevant articles (and occasionally resources elsewhere on the Web). I could use help in determining what questions to include. If you only recently began exploring Quakers, what questions did you and do you have? If you are in the position of answering questions from inquirers, what questions do you get most frequently? Please email me with your input.
