"So why doesn't the spell checker at a Quaker site have the word "convincement"? :-)"

"There's room for considerable skepticism as to what such tests measure -- My guess would be 'self-concept.' Self-concept will, of course have a lot to do with how a person becomes; and certainly it means something that Pendle Hill…"

Myers-Briggs at Pendle Hill ca. 1989

Excerpted from my blog at WordPress.comWhen I was on staff at Pendle Hill we had a weekend staff workshop. We took the Myers-Briggs Type Inventory (MBTI) which categorizes people on four dimensions according to Jungian theory (click here for description). As I remember all but two of us were INFP and all of us were IN. It means we are all introverts and intuitive on the two main axes. In addition we were all perceiving rather than judging. I was one of the two Ts, or thinking (rather than…See More

which "Primitive Christianity Revived, Again"

Every time I log onto QuakerQuaker I see that "Primitive Christianity Revived, Again" line. This morning I went back and glanced over William Penn's essay by that name. Primitive Christianity encompassed a great range of theologies from Arian to Nestorian and Gnostic, and within the church as now constituted there are the theologies of Paul, the synoptic gospels, and John, all different on a close reading. It was the purpose of the creeds to define Christian orthodoxy (for state purposes). The…See More

Profile Information

About Me
I live in Brookhaven, Pennsylvania with my wife Patricia Daly and our cat Nabi (나비=butterfly in Korean). I have an adult son Geoffrey, who lives with his wife Yeji (김예지) and their son Solomon, and works in Media, Pa.; and a stepdaughter Natalie, a social worker who lives with her wife in Kimberton, Pennsylvania.

I am convinced of the gospel (Mark 1:15) in its Quaker understanding ("Christ has come to teach his people himself"). Pat and I are members of Goshen Monthly Meeting (PhYM).

I also believe, with John Woolman, "There is a principle which is pure, placed in the human mind, which in different places and ages hath had different names. It is, however, pure and proceeds from God. It is deep and inward, confined to no forms of religion nor excluded from any..."

Brief Bio

I am a returned Peace Corps Volunteer (Korea-6), and retired statistician (Hahnemann Medical College, and the U.S. Naval Academy), child welfare worker (Delaware County Sexual Abuse Center), religious educator (six years as Coordinator of Adult Religious Education for PhYM), and thrice prison worker (ministry supported by Western Quarter of PhYM: AVP lead trainer Gander Hill, addictions counselor at CSI Chester, PA).

 After my convincement in Annapolis I accepted employment at Pendle Hill where I remained with my soon for two and a half years in the late 1980s and have since led workshops there. I represented BaYM on the General Board of Friends United Meeting in the 1990s. I hold an M.A in Theology from Villanova University. Now retired, I continue to offer workshops in Quakerism and the Bible as requested.

My experience in Korea has greatly influenced my life (my first wife, and mother of my son Geoffrey, is Korean; as is my daughter-in-law, 김예지, mother of my grandson Solomon). My early spiritual life (which began around age 30) was Buddhist and was closely tied to the martial arts. I continue to practice the Taoist discipline of Yang style Taichi-Chuan.
