Robin and Martin talk about the workshop dynamics

"David Carl, in case Robin doesn't see this... She's written about the initial experiment on her blog, here. Robin, maybe you can give us an update about how it's going, since it's been more than a year since the…"

Robin and Martin talk about the workshop dynamics

"The videos all have been great, especially since I wasn't there. I appreciated the reminder that at some point, we stop being "workshop leaders" and we are yielding to the Holy Spirit and its leadership. And while it's true that…"

"*sigh* Not gonna make it. Part of why the Way has not been open--or not very clear--has been that I've taken a more critical look at how much I had been traveling, and I've become resigned to the nudge to travel less, given the Plight of…"

"Thanks, Nathan. I've already gotten a dozen replies in less than 24 hours, so I'm encouraged! I think it's helped to have the link to the survey cross-posted in several places. Woo-hoo! Blessings, Liz"

What if blog posts were in print...?

In the past few years, Quaker blog writing has made its way into a few Quaker meetings because an interested Friend here or there has printed hard copies of some posts and has offered a discussion group around them.What if more blog posts were made available in print? What if there were a BOOK of blog posts that a number of us felt were important? What would you like to see in such a publication? Which blog posts do you feel are central to, or otherwise advance the Convergent conversation, the…See More

Clerking, with Deborah Fisch and Bill Deutsch

This is an opportunity for Friends to explore together how clerks can help meetings faithfully consider the business before them in a centered and worshipful manner. We plan to have opportunities in both small and large group settings...Deborah and Bill have both served as presiding clerks of Iowa Yearly Meeting (Conservative). Deborah is the current clerk and was assistant clerk to Bill prior to that.See More

Hi, Liz,

Actually, I did write a comment on your blog, but the coded word I was to decipher appeared as only a white block with a red x in it.

The workshop I took was "Called to Discipleship," led by Mary Kay Glazer. I later learned that she is enrolled in the School of the Spirit, and I believe that much of what she led us in was based on what she herself was learning.

The workshop was more Christian-oriented than I have the language for, having been raised an agnostic and picking up most of my Christian understanding off the streets (so to speak!). Or, when I was in college and taking courses in religion, those courses didn't really address the cross per se. As a Quaker of the liberal sort, I really wish to learn more about my cousins across the Society, and it appears the cross is something that means a lot to others.

Yours in the Light, Paula

Dear Liz,

Thank you so much for your report on Margery Post Abbott's talk. I felt it would be rewarding, and you make it possible for those of us who can't go to an event to learn from it. In particular, I have been struggling with ideas of the cross since taking a workshop at the FGC Gathering this summer. Having your definitions in hand--and definitions given by others--is very helpful.

I look forward to hearing more from you on this talk and other events in your life.

Yours in the Light, Paula

Hi, Liz - could I use your versions of the starfish and babies-in-the-river stories for the Durham UK Meeting newsletter, please? I'll credit you and link to your post. Thanks in advance!
