Hey Wess, I finally got your comment when I got home last night. It was great meeting you and talking about FFC. I am keeping my fingers crossed that I will see more of you and Emily in the Pacific Northwest!
thanks for the welcome, Wess. I'm not Quaker yet, but maybe you can convert me ;-) One of my favorite artists is Quaker: David Wilcox. Anyway, I'm looking forward to learning more from Quaker Emergents.
I would definitely recommend checking out some of the parks (weather permitting), including Forest Park, which is more like hiking than strolling through a city park. Powell's bookstore downtown is also a must. I have attended a couple of different meetings in town, including one rather informal one on my college's campus. Hope you have a great time here and let know if I can help out in any way.
Yep, they're always adding stuff. To start I'll want to sequester away some of the fancier stuff to focus on the "traditional" QQ feed. If I can get it working something like the current site I'll think about moving it over. Until now this is just a ning sandbox.
It takes many hours a month to sift through hundreds of websites to come up with this daily curated list of the best of the Quaker web. If you learn more about Friends and find joy and spiritual growth in the conversations these links provide, please consider supporting the ministry with a monthly subscription.
