Overview and metadata sections

The Quaker Universalist Fellowship was founded in 1983 in part as an American response to the London-based Quaker Universalist Group. As stated in its journal and web site (2004): The Quaker Universalist Fellowship is an informal gathering of persons who cherish the spirit of universality that has always been intrinsic to the Quaker faith. We acknowledge and respect the diverse spiritual experience of those within our own meetings as well as of the human family worldwide; we are enriched by our conversation with all who search sincerely. We affirm the unity of God's creation.

The Fellowship produces pamphlets and a journal, Universalist Friends: The Journal of The Quaker Universalist Fellowship.

Includes minutes and publications, a brief history of the organization, texts of talks, and other documents.

Organized into three series:

  1. History and official documentation
  2. Minutes
  3. Talks on Quaker Universalism
