In response to this thread I looked up a bunch of stuff in "Elias Hicks: Quaker Liberal" about Hicks and reason/rationalism, his influences, and how that influenced his theology, because I mentioned his use of reason being criticized in his life and was asked for sources.

I recently got my own copy of "Elias Hicks: Quaker Liberal," a book I borrowed from my university's library but did not finish before graduating and returning the book.

I just started listening to your podcast, it's great! I find it really informative as a new Quaker attender. I grew up Catholic too, and appreciate your references to the Catholic faith. Just curious, what led you to wear your head covering? I attend a liberal meeting, but I love plain dress and am interested in learning more about it!
Thank you so much for accepting my invitation! I look forward to being your friend and getting to know you better.
Thank thee kindly and blessings to thee!
Thank thee for being our Friend and Friending us!
Peace to thee,
