Friends Journal is a monthly Quaker magazine that combines first-person narrative, reportage, poetry, and news. It is an independent publication of Friends Publishing Corporation based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Friends Journal began with two earlier publications, The Friend (Orthodox, 1827—1955) and The Friends Intelligencer (Hicksite, 1844—1955). It was rebranded as Friends Journal in 1955 with the merger of the two magazines, which coincided with the reconciliation of Hicksite and Orthodox Friends in Philadelphia . It was originally published weekly and then bi-weekly; it became a monthly periodical in 1988.
In 2014, Friends Journal launched QuakerSpeak, a YouTube channel featuring interviews with Friends on core questions of Quaker faith.
In 2016, Friends Journal received the Best in Class award from the Association of Church Press.
