Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
Why do Primitive Quakers cling to tradition? Is it a comforting way to be with one another and speak and practice comforting, known, already practice methods of socializing? I do not know where Primitive Quakers feel that "tradition" leads them and would very much like to understand how what feels very much like a "retro" approach is helpful in one's spiritual life which, I always assumed, meant exploring spiritual insights which had not been achieved before.
The idea of returning to a previously achieved spiritual experience in order to re-experience it is new to me. Or, have I misunderstood?
