Can Quakerism Adapt?

Just before leaving Monteverde and Monteverde Friends Meeting I wrote a short article on the challenges of sustaining the Quaker tradition for their inaugural newsletter, Semillas. I try to employ some of the science I know around the durability of institutions and the dynamics of human cooperation to explore the topic. It was an admittedly simple and shallow analysis, but I hope some find it useful.

It can be found here: in both English and Español.

    Hi there. I came across your post looking up the Monteverde meeting. Super interesting.

    By chance are you related to a Tom Waring ? ( I am). I’m a sociologist living in CR the rest of the year… just passing through Monteverde. Thought it would be crazy small Quaker world if you are…
