Profile Information

Just to clafiry...

I am Martin's wife and not a Quaker. At least not anymore. I was raised in the Holy Catholic Church and left it while in high school, was among liberal Quakers for eleven years, and returned to the Church while pregnant with our first son. I doubt that I will participate in any or in many discussions here, but it is interesting to read once in a while. Frankly, it continues to amaze me that the same ridiculousness seems to keep re-emerging, with reference to "non-theist" and other non-Christian "Friends." It makes no sense to me whatsoever and shows complete lack of historical or theological Quaker background or, for that matter, regard. As a friend (and former Friend) of mine used to say, "Quakerism without Christianity is like a train without tracks. It's nice to look at, but it won't take you anywhere." So true. In any case, it is my prayer that all come to know Christ in his Church, not because I am attempting to be obnoxious, but because it is only in Him that we can truly rest and know the Truth.

Hello Julie! Are you still running that godly plain/modest dress email group? That was such a help to me when I was struggling with how I should dress to reflect my faith. I'm glad to see you here. xx

Oh NO!, are YOU going to start a Group here about how we should all start having priests, confession and communion in Quaker meeting, cause it's all about love and wouldn't we be big bad meanies if we didn't allow for all spiritual expressions to flourish and nurture in Technicolor vibrancy?

I got my finger on the "Delete User" button, lady. You're trouble with a capital T, I can tell that right now! :)
