Daily Picks from Around the Web

Quaker grey, Bolivian style

Quaker grey, Bolivian style:

Nancy Thomas shows off some fancy shawls:

A beautiful shawl tells people, “I’ve arrived. I’m important.” If the Quaker value for understatement and plainness is to catch on here, it has to come from within the culture, not imposed from the outside. In the meantime, I, personally, enjoy the display.

A Methodist take on clearness committees

A Methodist take on clearness committees:

Danny E Morris tries out the Quaker practice in his Methodist church:

The clearness committee was introduced to our congregation through a sermon on Communion Sunday. The history of its origin, the unique features that give it spiritual power, and a step-by-step description of the process were essential elements of the initial introduction.

Equality and employee fairness

Equality and employee fairness:

Gordon Ferguson writes of pickets at London’s Friend House:

There is a world of difference between being nice to people and treating them equally, and at the end of the day Friends House Hospitality are merely ‘unprofitable servants’ doing their duty by by law and good practice.

Keeping to meeting

Keeping to meeting:

From the Malachut blog:

They needed no building except for that temple they built as their hearts joined in the union of silence.A meeting for worship has some versatility it can be done anywhere a park,a waterfall,a bus,a subway etc

Living in a Time of Crisis

Living in a Time of Crisis:

From Mike Farley

How can one little person make any difference in so great an issue, and in any case, how can anyone, individually or collectively, know what might make a difference? The answer seems to me to be found in the silence that lies at the heart of all we do as Friends – that lies at the heart, in fact, of all experiential faith of whatever era or persuasion.

Peterson Toscano interview

Peterson Toscano interview:

A radio interview with the Quaker performance artist and Bible scholar.

Learning To Embrace the Hybrid Jew – Forward.com

Learning To Embrace the Hybrid Jew – Forward.com:

A response to a recent advice column from a birthright Friend who had converted to Judaism for her marriage:

Both-and, not either-or. Not only is this not “not being Jewish,” it’s how more and more Jews actually are Jewish today. Hybridization is a fact.
