Getting the ball rolling here on the series on Quakerism I discussed in the previous post. I know I didn't get any takers on the poll item regarding ideas for articles, but I'm hoping that some of our community's lovely writers might feel led to share their gifts.

I'm soliciting relatively short entries-- 300-500 words (or less, if you can cover the topic more succinctly). The point of this series is to provide background on topics related to Quakerism--basic information for those new to or exploring the Society of Friends, and short introductions to more specific or involved topics that help Friends kick off their own reading and research.

Here are a few topic ideas, if anyone wants to claim them, or use them to inspire their own topics. If you'd like to write a post for this, drop a note in the comments here so we can coordinate.

-What to expect at your first meeting for worship; or a review of what your first meeting for worship was like

-An explanation of a Quaker practice (why do many Quakers refuse to take oaths? Abstain from military service? Avoid the use of honorifics like "Your Honor?")

-A basic introduction to the Quaker business/consensus process

-What's a yearly meeting?

-An overview of the different kinds of Quakerism

-Explain the George Fox song.

On a related subject, does anyone have any suggestions for what to call the series/what tag to use for it?
