I thought Quakers were different

I thought Quakers were different:

From Mark Pratt Russum, a pastor at West Hills Friends:

This fiasco has energized the young people within NWYM. Folks who have grown up in that institution, who have known Evangelical Quakerism as their spiritual home. I’m not convinced that the Evangelical and Quaker identities of the NWYM need to break apart.

The Religious Ideal

The Religious Ideal:
When we do not tend our garden, weeds feel entitled to be there.

Northwest Yearly Meeting Unity

Northwest Yearly Meeting Unity:

A new website from Northwest Friends:

This website is one outcome of an open meeting of Friends on July 26, 2015, in response to the decision of the NWYM Elders to revoke membership of West Hills Friends Church.

West Hill Friends: What happened next

West Hill Friends: What happened next:

An update on the Meeting kicked out by Northwest Yearly Meeting:

Wow. 72 hours. It has been 72 hours since we received the news of our dismissal from our yearly meeting. The facebook notifications have been endless. Young people here in the northwest are angry,…

Lives of the Quaker LGBTI community in Zimbabwe

Lives of the Quaker LGBTI community in Zimbabwe:

Paul Ricketts interviews African Friends:

Can you please share briefly the human rights situation for lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals in Zimbabwe today?

On Quaker community: A does of humility?

On Quaker community: A does of humility?:

From Emerging Diane:

Is the nurture we offer one another leading us back out to change the world. Or does it cause us, especially the people in leadership, to have a false view of themselves?

I am one of you, but you don’t want me

I am one of you, but you don’t want me:

From Sarah Kelley of NWYM:

I am one of you. Quakers brought me into this world, brought me up feeling loved and cared for and part of a community that, though imperfect, I knew loved me. A community that was interested in what I had to say, because Quakers have always understood that gender had nothing to do with a person’s ability to hear from God and to speak truth to others.

You have value. You are loved.

You have value. You are loved.:

Gregg Koskela writes from Northwest Yearly Meeting:

I’m writing to say that there are people who love you and who want to stay in relationship with you. I’m writing to say that I for one am able to embrace you and be your friend.

A missing piece of the truth

A missing piece of the truth:

Lynn Fitz-Hugh on applying and adapting Quaker models in the secular world:

So the interesting question to me is how can we bring a little bit of Quakerism to the rest of the world? I’m not talking here about preaching about Quakerism.

Unbiblical?

Unbiblical?:

Gregg Koskela on using the Bible for disagreements:

The scriptures have shaped our theology which shapes how we interpret and even translate the bible. It’s not easy to get it right. It’s not easy to realize when we are just wanting to find a path we like, and when we are letting God challenge us to change or maybe even repent. But it is certainly not unbiblical to ask, “What does the bible really say?” I don’t like our disagreement, but I am no longer afraid of it. I don’t like saying “I don’t understand all of this”, but I am no longer afraid of it.

Judge not, that you not be judged. For with the judgement you pronounce you will be judged; and the measure you give will be the measure you get. Why do you see the speck that is in your brother's eye, but do not notice the log that is in your own…Continue

Do Quakers Live This Way? [ Matthew 6.25 -> ]

Therefore I tell you, do not be anxious about your life, what you shall eat or what you shall drink, nor about your body, what you shall put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air: They neither…Continue
