Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
I'm a blogger, web designer and dad living thirty miles outside Philadelphia in a small town in the pine barrens of South Jersey. I'm a "convinced" Friend and member of Atlantic City Area Monthly Meeting of Philadelphia Yearly Meeting. I've served on the staffs of Friends General Conference, Friends Journal and New Society Publishers and over the last twenty years I've collaborated on many projects with many Quaker organizations.
In 2011, I returned to Friends Journal as editor.
I've been curating online communities and blogging since the mid-1990s. My writing has been published or featured in the New York Times, Washington Post, Atlantic Monthly and USA Today as well as a number of Quaker publications. I've been blogging as the Quaker Ranter since 2003.
I'm the founder of QuakerQuaker, which started around 2003 as a highlight of interesting links. In 2005 I was awarded recognition and a modest grant from the Clarence and Lilly Pickett Endowment for Quaker Leadership to turn it into an online magazine (dubbed QuakerQuaker after a 2003 essay). In 2010, I co-launched the Quaker Ad Network. I'm occasionally asked to lead workshops and give talks on Quakerism.
