Quaker Structure: Is decentralization good or bad?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Ron Bell 5th month 13, 2010. 2 Replies

As a Convinced Friend, I think for me what was the most difficult fact about Quakerism to absorb was the vast amount of decentralization regarding Friendly structure.  Being used to other faiths…Continue

Due to a divorce, I've been forced to relocate back home. I arrived around six months ago and believed I was assimilating well until today. I attend the Meeting where I first…See More

"I do.  It's another dimension I think of as a spiritual realm.  Has nothing to do with my Quaker membership.  Probably believe in it in spite of it.:)"

"I accept and appreciate you (by your own admission) are not (nor want to be) in such a condition that by you is supposed different and distinct. It could not be otherwise in the case of those who know no other condition."

"Being dead is supposed to be different; so I've heard. It continues, so far, to make people elusive and hard for us to talk to. I am not yet, nor would I want to be, in a condition where the distinction didn't matter. Chacun a son gout."

Please be Patient God isn't Finished with me yet. I hope you will forgive me Kevin.  I really went into an unexpected spasm of grief, around the anniversary of the death of a pre-born child.  I shouldn't have been online or tried to discuss preborn children during that time. The corny line I open this post with hails back to the Jesus Freak days of the 1970s, when people wore buttons and t-shirts saying that.  Of all the silly things we did, maybe that is the one thing that made any sense. Best wishes, and sorry I was such a bee----itch.

Hi Kevin: great to see you here! Thanks for joining and condolences on that bus accident (just read your post), I'd be just as livid!
