Who We Are

Organization of the Quaker Universalist Fellowship

The Quaker Universalist Fellowship (QUF) is a fellowship of Quakers and others concerned with the development and discernment of universalist themes in the Quaker tradition, and through Quakers into the world. Fellowship members support QUF financially, and with suggestions and writings to expand reflection and communication.

Anyone, whether Quaker or not, is invited to join the QUF through participation in the blog, sending suggestions to the QUF Clerk, and through financial contributions.

The QUF is led by a Steering committee of Quakers from many Yearly Meetings (regional organizations of Quakers). Nominations for the Steering Committee membership can be addressed to the Nominations Committee c/o the Clerk of QUF.

Within the Steering Committee, members serve in diverse capacities of content editors and writers, managers of the various Internet and social media functions, and represent QUF to Quaker organizations. Members also serve as Clerk, Treasurer and Recording Clerk.

The Steering Committee meets by telephone conference monthly, and in a face-to-face meeting annually in October.
