Hye Sung Francis: Speak in Tongues, or Wait in Silence?

Hye Sung Francis: Speak in Tongues, or Wait in Silence?:

"I like speaking in tongues. There are times, though, where I need to not speak in tongues and embrace silence. Silence can be a bit more challenging."

Writing down a traditional Quaker Christianity

Writing down a traditional Quaker Christianity:

Patricia Dallmann looks at a new resource from Ohio Friends: “This book would be helpful for anyone wanting a readable introduction to or comprehensive overview of the original tenets of Quaker Christianity, and the sustaining practices that have evolved in Ohio Yearly Meeting.”

A story in pictures of the recent @eqat Earth Quakers action

A story in pictures of the recent @eqat Earth Quakers action:

Photos of the street theater for a climate change action in NYC last week: “90+ EQATers from near and far took action today!  We found PNC guilty of Climate Disruption.  PNC Bank, when will you be the green bank you claim to be?”

Wailing as a Quaker

Wailing as a Quaker:

Gil George talks about making space for raw emotions: “The Friends have had a rough history with emotionalism, and by not allowing any space for it in our meetings it comes out in unhealthy ways. When the overly emotionial revivals and charismatic movements came through, we ended up being split by them because there were some people among us who desperately needed a place to carry their raw emotions before God and their community.”

Sitting still – or not

Sitting still – or not:

Stephanie explains that sitting still isn’t the goal of silent worship:

Being physically still is a tool to an inner stillness, which is itself a tool to an awareness of something that is otherwise blocked or hidden by the constant activity and busyness of my mind and body. If I try too hard to keep my body still that effort is in itself a distraction and defeats the purpose.

Steps on the path

Steps on the path:

Elizabeth Edminster shares her Quaker story:

I came to admit that the True Thing I was experiencing had something to do with God that was closer and more real to me than anything anyone had ever said about God.

Repentance and Remission of Sins

Repentance and Remission of Sins:

John Edminster shares some Quaker beliefs:

Jesus left his followers with a commission to preach, that is, to announce the availability of, a changed state of mind (metanoia or “repentance”) that would allow one to know oneself to be sinless: in other words, that one’s previously acknowledged sins had been dismissed, forgiven, and declared null and void.

Fanaticism

Started by Clem Gerdelmann in Quaker Talk. Last reply by Forrest Curo 9th month 23. 15 Replies
