"Would you therefore also say that converts are not Jews, if it's only descendants of Judah? (I suspect many a Cohen and a Levi would be surprised to hear they're not really Jews!)"

"Jews are only from the tribe of Judah? By that logic, Levites (and Kohanim, who often carry the last name "Cohen"), who in ancient days took care of the Temple and in modern Orthodox Judaism still have special responsibilities,…"

"In the context of the word "antisemite," yes, it definitely is a synonym for Jewish. My understanding is that the word "antisemitic" was coined by the Nazis to describe themselves."

Quaker survey, beliefs into practice

Posted on 1st mo. 6, 2016 at 2:20pm 0 Comments

Hey folks,

Over on the Quakerism subreddit, a student showed up with a list of questions they needed to ask Quakers about our beliefs and how we put those beliefs into action. I suggested they make a form that could be shared around on here, Twitter, etc. since there are way more Quakers not-on-Reddit than on Reddit. They obliged. Here are their questions

Elias Hicks, reason/rationalism, and some atonement theory

In response to this thread I looked up  a bunch of stuff in "Elias Hicks: Quaker Liberal" about Hicks and reason/rationalism, his influences, and how that influenced his theology, because I mentioned his use of reason being criticized in his life and was asked for sources. Here are selected excerpts . I'm only posting one of them in that thread.

Elias Hicks on what is required of a Christian

Posted on 10th mo. 22, 2015 at 10:51am 2 Comments

Hi Mackenzie!

I just started listening to your podcast, it's great! I find it really informative as a new Quaker attender. I grew up Catholic too, and appreciate your references to the Catholic faith. Just curious, what led you to wear your head covering? I attend a liberal meeting, but I love plain dress and am interested in learning more about it!

Best,

Annie

Dear MacKenzie,

Re Aikido:

In a recent discussion, you wrote,  "and then I lay you gently down."

Love it, love it. In my experience, God practices Aikido.  :)

Yours in the Light, Paula
