"They don't care about us."

I heard these words spoken last week by Mr. Harold Brown, a life-long New Orleans resident.  William Penn House and students from Sidwell Friends School participating in a Workcamp were taking the first steps of what will be a lengthy process of bringing at least a smidgen of justice to this man who has suffered from the political, corporate and community corruption that has followed Katrina relief.  See more about this…See More

"Open and Affirming" is not the same as "Reconciliation and Forgiveness"

When we welcome people who have been harmed by other faith messages, is it ok to simply share in the avoidance of the abuser (The Bible, as it has been used against people)?  To what extent should we get to know the Bible more, so we can bring greater reconciliation?  These are not easy issues, but may be important if these welcoming congregations want to really help with reconciliation…See More

Profile Information

About Me
Program Coordinator at William Penn House. Committed to exploring the "core, unshakable truth" of Quakerism as a faith community as well as among our members. My own is that "there is that of God in all", and "Radical Hospitality" is the external expression of that.
