About Me
I was a Quaker for about 4 decades - longtime member of a liberal meeting while also an affiliate member of a Conservative meeting. Dropped my membership in Friends and joined Cedar Ridge Community Church in 2005. In 2013, I joined Friends of Jesus - DC Metro Area, an independent Christian Quaker group, while retaining my membership in Cedar Ridge. I was interested in Christian renewal among Friends, and in cross-fertilization between Friends and the Emerging Church movement. I became active not only locally but in Friends of Jesus Fellowship nationally, serving on the Workers Group and active in our twice-yearly Gatherings. I have now left Cedar Ridge, and in the absence of regular Friends of Jesus activities locally, have become a Congregational Member of Dayspring Church. one of the Church of the Saviour faith communities. Dayspring is non-pastoral and uses Quaker business process. I also run QuakerInfo.com.
