About Me
I'm a native of Greensboro, N.C. and spent lots of time at a place in Guilford County called Quaker Village. The tolerant Quaker tradition can still be felt in the village. Now I'm in Beverly Hills, California, but I still think back to my days in Quaker Village with much fondness.

Tradition, Forbearance, And Tolerance

Posted on 8th mo. 20, 2009 at 9:45am 0 Comments

In these days of polarized thinking there is something refreshing about the traditional Quaker tolerance for other viewpoints.

The qualities of inclusion engendered by tolerance is something very desirable in any day and age, but even more so in our present time.

When membership in so many organisations today carries a "us against them flavor," it sure makes one value the unity that a plurality born out of tolerance provides. We need much more of that!
