About Me
Technically, one might call me a birthright Friend. I prefer the term congenital Friend (embracing both definitions at http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/congenital).

Raised in a liberal friends’ tradition, today I find myself a full member of both Philadelphia Yearly Meeting and Ohio Yearly Meeting. I first encountered Ohio’s consistently deep worship in my mid 40s. That experience taught me to keep Christ at the center.

My membership is with Marlborough Monthly Meeting of PYM and Keystone Friends Meeting of OYM. Both communities are precious to me.
