A Religiously Motivated Nickname

Quaker women
We as members of the Church have become accustomed to our classification as “Mormons.” It’s a nickname given to the Church dating back to the earliest years of this dispensation. However, we’re not the only religious group of people that are better known by their nickname than the actual official name of the Church. For instance, certain evangelical groups have been dubbed “Holy Rollers.” The “Quakers” also share the same distinction. What religious body is known by the nickname “Quaker”?

A)     Pentecostal

B)     Anglican

C)     The Society of Friends

D)     Seventh Day Adventist

Yesterdays answer:

(D)   Willard Richards

The only apostle to be ordained outside the confines of the United States was Willard Richards on April 14, 1840 at Preston, England. Those who placed their hands on his head were Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball, Parley P. Pratt, Orson Pratt, Wilford Woodruff, George A. Smith, and John Taylor.
