Quaker business meeting as a pizza

Quaker business meeting as a pizza:

Zachary Dutton explains why we should sometimes hold the onions: “Sometimes, we decide that, although the objection is important, we will, “leave it off the pizza,” as it were.”

Moses Brown School goes viral with a snow closing video

Moses Brown School goes viral with a snow closing video:

Head of school Matt Glendinning stars in a Frozen parody that’s almost reached 350,000 views. “We could make you come to school, but that would just be mean.”

Q&A: I Don't Want To Be Jewish Anymore

Q&A: I Don't Want To Be Jewish Anymore:

Steven Davison: Are we ready for the Quaker-pocalyse?

Steven Davison: Are we ready for the Quaker-pocalyse?:

AFSC, race, and Quaker exceptionalism in early 20th century

AFSC, race, and Quaker exceptionalism in early 20th century :

From an interview on a history blog:

There Is Only Love or Fear

There Is Only Love or Fear:

From Amy Outlaw:

There is only love or fear. One can be in-love, or in-fear. The “powers that be”, the systems of domination that keep recreating themselves for at least the last 5000 years maintain their power over us to the extent that they cause us, humans, to exist in-fear instead of in-love.

Public Witness

What can faith communities do to support the Black Lives Matter movement?

What can faith communities do to support the Black Lives Matter movement?:

Greg Elliott of AFSC maps out some ideas after watching “Selma”:

Strategy, tactics, coalition building, and organizing all need to take place but so does gathering in community to tell our stories, be vulnerable, and share new visions that can replace the old ones. Safe spaces for communion, sanctuary, and healing are needed in a world that is too often aggressive, hostile, and dangerous, especially for marginalized communities. What if faith communities can help to create those spaces?

The Activity of God

Started by Forrest Curo in Quaker Talk. Last reply by Keith Saylor 1st month 16. 25 Replies

We know various meanings -- perhaps none of them sounding quite right to us -- for phrases like "The Kingdom of God" or "The World of God."Could people find a better sense, at this point, in a phrase like 'The Activity of God'?Continue
