Peco proposes solar programs; activists unimpressed

Peco proposes solar programs; activists unimpressed:
“Earth Quaker Action Team, the activist group that launched the protests, said Peco’s plans were “big on hype and little on change.” EQAT has demanded that Peco get 20 percent of its power supply from solar by 2025. Under state law, Pennsylvania utilities are required to obtain a minimum of 0.5 percent solar supply by 2021.”

Quaker Meeting in new television crime thriller

Quaker Meeting in new television crime thriller:
“One of the main characters, played by Lesley Sharp, attends Quaker Meetings and she invites one of the main investigating police officers, played by Robert Glenister, to come too. We think they will be really short scenes – just a few seconds – but will be there in more than one episode.”

Friends Need to Tell the Truth

Friends Need to Tell the Truth:
:I have safely ignored others’ pain. I have been irresponsible, unthinking, callous. I have been an active participant in white supremacy. I have benefited from it. And I am absolutely disgusted with myself. Maybe what we need is repentance. At least as a first step.“

Dedication of Historical Marker at Arch Street Meeting House

Dedication of Historical Marker at Arch Street Meeting House:
Malcolm Lazin, Executive Director of the Equality Forum, related that “[i]n 1979, when this conference was held, we were ‘toxic.’ There was no other meeting place,” Lazin said. “The Philadelphia Quakers were the only ones who embraced the LGBT rights activists.”

New Blog: In the Shadow of Babylon

New Blog: In the Shadow of Babylon:
How can we claim our identity as Children of Light in a world so often shrouded in darkness? To be honest, I am not sure. Will you join me as I try to find out?

Barriers and Language

Barriers and Language:
In my early years as a Friend, I remember hearing vocal ministry that referred to “the Author and Finisher of our faith” rather than naming Jesus explicitly. Nowadays these Quaker terms such as Inward Light can mistakenly be used in the service of weakening our ties with Christianity, but that old impulse to curb our verbosity when referring to God still seems valid to me.

Sharing Quakerism in the Public Square

Sharing Quakerism in the Public Square:
I believe a great number of people are trying to find a spiritual home right now, and that Quakerism may be an answer for many of them. But they need a way to find us

Discernment...A Quaker Gift for the World

Discernment...A Quaker Gift for the World:
I would like to argue here that the tool of discernment is one of the greatest gifts Quakerism has to offer the world and should be applied more widely.

What wisdom do you have to share with a student at a friends school about quakerism?

What wisdom do you have to share with a student at a friends school about quakerism?:
My teachers have failed to completely explain what quakerism is beyond SPICES and then going on to make it a lesson about how we always make a mess in the classroom, and I’m looking for more. I am not saying that I will ever pursue quakerism beyond my high school, but I can’t decide that until I hear it explained to me by someone other than my teachers.

We Need a New Quakerism

We Need a New Quakerism:
I’m not talking about re-imagining structures or techniques. We need a complete change of course. We need a revival. A brief breeze of enthusiasm is not enough.
