Quaker Ministry

Oxford Handbook of Quaker Studies
Stephen Angell, Geraldine Leatherock Professor of Quaker Studies, celebrating as co-editor with other contributors to The Oxford Handbook of Quaker Studies

Friends’ endorsement of universal ministry and their commitment to be led by the Spirit call for the open exploration of potential avenues of and models for ministry in life and work. Quaker understandings of God, humanity, faith, and practice are identified and explored in these courses, and provide a rich context for considering how ministry is offered individually, and within corporate settings. Courses in this area include: Quaker Public Ministry; Quaker History and Literature; Quaker Beliefs; Modern Quaker Life and Thought; and the Creation of Modern Quaker Diversity.
