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

Thanksgiving Cheer

I originally wrote this post as an open letter to my Meeting, Friends Meeting of Washington, DC. In it, I reflect upon the romantic notion of a perfect Thanksgiving and the way it often turns out instead.  __________ Dear Friends,Thanksgiving means warm thoughts of togetherness and familial bliss to many of us. Yet, for some of…See More

"It seems you have some ethical questions about religion. It may just be that the Quaker faith is not a dogma, but that through worship one embraces non-violence in the spirit of service, and it's service. I empathize with a strong call to be a…"

Encouraging Voluntary Conversion, Not Winning Souls

During a recent support group for people with anxiety disorders, I mentioned that I was a Quaker. The moderator was extremely familiar with Friends terminology, even knowing our Testimonies (Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, and Equality) by heart, a rare feat for someone who isn't one of us. She had great respect for what I and others believe, but uttered a particular sentence…See More

Transgender Lives, Transgender Rhetoric

I am proud of my house of worship in many ways, but its progressive stance towards LGBTs is a major reason why. Organized religion has unnecessarily and gratuitously wounded many queer attenders to religious Worship, but I have long believed that God is available to all and draws no distinctions based on…See More

George (Fox) and Me

Well before I read the story of George Fox's trials and tribulations as a young man, I did my own wanderings. Mine tended to be from church to church, seeking some person or Divine force to heal me. These travels always corresponded with a severe period of clinical depression, which scared me with its ferocity and longevity.…See More

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!
