The Friend magazine is more like a newspaper, and home to the Quakers. Often called ‘western Buddhists’, this religion broke away from what it thought was the hypocritical Church of England, and campaigns widely on world peace, environment, animal welfare and rehabilitation of prisoners. The latest article obviously calls for a ceasefire in Ukraine and other articles cover the upcoming general election, gender-based violence, modern slavery and fundraising for a peace garden.
Each week, be provided with news, features, personal stories, arts, humour and friendship. With this alternative newspaper, keep up to date with contemporary Quaker thought and action. Based in London, it’s published weekly.
Quakers have often been described as ‘western Buddhists’, a breakaway religion from the Church of England who became disillusioned of the hypocrisy of the main church (not much as changed). Whether you are religious or not, no-one can fail to be impressed by their legacy helping the planet, animals, prisoners and world peace.
