Emily Provance, a Friend who is called to the ministry of outreach and a member of Fifteenth Street Monthly Meeting, describes social media as "an unprecedented platform for witness and ministry." More Quaker meetings are turning to social platforms like Facebook to encourage newcomers and seekers to discover their spiritual communities.
