Explore videos about Quakers:
1) Quakers Australia has its own YouTube channel, which you can explore here.
2) We have developed a series of videos called Quakers in Australia , in which several Friends in Australia share their ideas and experiences.
For those in our Quaker meetings, we hope these will prompt reflection amongst Friends, and lead to discussion within meetings about personal experiences of Quakerism.
These discussion questions have been created to guide reflection and discussion after watching the videos. You might like to write your own questions while watching the video, or take notes of key ideas that you want to explore further.
