The darkness of God’s infinite Light…

The darkness of God’s infinite Light…:

From Mike Farley:

My sense that the work of eldership is at least as much prayer, and upholding the meeting and its ministries in prayer, as about anything else, has been deepened, confirmed and clarified.

Christ Within You: A Quaker Manifesto

Christ Within You: A Quaker Manifesto:

From George Amoss Jr:

The Quaker way is, then, the way of worship in spirit and in truth. To walk in that way is to walk intentionally and continually in the critical light of the power and wisdom called Christ–a truthful walking that takes us out of the unjust, violent world of selfishness and into the New Jerusalem.

Friends and Armenian relief

Friends and Armenian relief:

At the 100th anniversary of the start of the Armenian genocide is marked worldwide, Friends Library in London shares some of the documents from Quaker work there:

The Library’s collections include records of Friends who, in official or unofficial capacities, observed the effects of persecution and massacres of Armenians in the decades leading up to the 1915 genocide or were involved in relief work with refugees, orphans and the dispossessed.

Cheap Quakerism and Living Tradition

Cheap Quakerism and Living Tradition:

Mark Russ reflects on a recent lecture by Ben Pink Dandelion:

Cheap Quakerism results in pseudo-communities – groups of people who have made no commitment to each other, and therefore don’t spend any time cultivating interpersonal relationships. How can we trust each other if we hardly know each other? How can we be a Society of Friends?

The refuge of community

The refuge of community:

The Malachut blogger gives a modern response to the early Quaker letter from Balby:

The Elders end this advice with"Lest the Truth Suffer"this to me means that we cannot have onne form of the community without the others.Community itself cannot exist without being something without compassion just as much not being a place that goes far beyond it’s borders.

Silence or Stillness as a Spiritual Discipline

Silence or Stillness as a Spiritual Discipline:

Doug Bennett on still worship:

While gathering in stillness didn’t come easily to me as a spiritual practice, I found it more satisfying than going to a conventional worship service. Occasionally going to a Quaker meeting I would hear an unplanned message that was truly amazing: fresh, clear, energized, piercing. Those moments were not made less potent for me by the more numerous ordinary messages I also heard in Meetings.

Liberal vs radical social witness

Liberal vs radical social witness:

Another installment from Steven Davison’s Quaker-pocalypse series:

Liberal social action tends to be respectful, too, if not even a bit deferential. The liberal impulse in witness and outreach seeks not to turn away a seeker who might be made uncomfortable by un-reasonable words and actions, or to seem to disrespect the people with whom we disagree. This is not radical, and I question whether it is the path to renewal.
