"The Quaker church I went to just out of college did a number of things that kept me on board. I have to say I chose to stay there and become a member because I felt I was a Quaker no matter what and it was the only Quaker church around (plus it was…"

"The Red Letter Christians website had an interesting piece this week that seems relevant. It seems like the goal of "attracting young people to the church" is about the institution, not about the people it's trying to serve; and so…"

Why I became a Quaker (or why, as a college student, I came back after my first time)

Note: This was originally a Facebook post I was unexpectedly led to write this morning after having yet another conversation about how to attract younger people to meetings. Friends seemed appreciative of it, and Martin Kelley encouraged me to spread it to a wider audience.With all the talk about why our Friends meetings and churches can't retain younger people, I want to share why Quakers managed to keep me, a "convinced" Friend. This isn't about what sets Quakers apart from other groups…See More

About Me

I'm a member of Friends Meeting at Cambridge (Mass.) who now attends Amesbury (Mass) Monthly Meeting. I began worshipping with Friends in 2002 at Austin Friends Meeting. I have, at various times, regularly worshipped at Fresh Pond Friends Meeting, San Antonio Friends Meeting, and Langley Hill Friends Meeting.

I've been active for years in New England Yearly Meeting, and in fall of 2010 began working for NEYM as Communications Director/Office Manager.

I've also been involved in building connections amongst the branches of Friends, having taken part in the World Gathering of Young Friends and several FWCC Section of the Americas gatherings. I believe the spark of Quakerism is not fully present in any one of our branches, but in our gestalt.

I like bicycling, motorcycling, woodworking, dog-walking, farm-walking, and when unprogrammed Friends are moved to vocal prayer. We should really do that more.
