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

"I have learned after a relatively long Quaker life that when I am having trouble in my head over a relationship (either with a relative, a friend, or a Friend), that it is best to take advantage of the "comforter" that Jesus said he was…"

"Friends have been so disconnected with each other that true dialogue is rare. And when many are unwilling to be confrontational, which is not necessarily a bad thing, concerns are never resolved. I've known this for years."

"Thanks for bringing up the "g-word," Forrest. The very fact that Mackenzie can comment about Keith's behavior in his meeting suggests the need for serious prayer and reflection around gospel order."

When Friends Disappoint

I must confess, at the outset, that I only have the energy to relay this sordid tale one more time. The last three days have been a strain but today I am able to sweep away some of the feelings of disappointment and betrayal. I find it difficult to comprehend what has transpired, how some people could feel threatened enough by me to resort to the tactics they did.…See More

When There is No There There in a House of Worship

Posted on 4th mo. 7, 2015 at 10:00am 2 Comments



This past Easter Sunday I decided to skip Quaker Meeting and attend a high church Episcopal service instead. My religious past was low church Protestant, as is true for most of the American South. I was raised in a very humble Methodist church with a few ornate trappings here and there, most of which…

The William Penn House has been a crucial hub of Quaker activity in Washington, DC, since 1966. It is a combination of watering hole and resource center where many of our local activities are scheduled. William Penn House, named after one of the most influential Friends ever, has been a…

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!
