Matthew Callow replied to Scott Martin's discussion 'Some Thoughts on Meeting Committee Structure' in the group Liberal Quakers
"I am the Clerk of my Area [Monthly] Meeting Nominations Committee and we fill the pastoral roles reasonably well, but struggle with finding Trustees, Clerks and Treasurers. A small number of people take on a lot of roles and at times get tired, yet…"

"https://youtu.be/hAt8-_9ApnI I see Conservative Friends in the US have a school - wonder if it has many Quaker pupils and staff?"

Matthew Callow replied to William F Rushby's discussion 'Jon Watts Struggles with Quaker Ministry Issues'
"I am within the Liberal Britain Yearly Meeting tradition which I guess is very similar to Philadelphia Year Meeting, which I think Jon belongs to. In Britain, the ascendancy of liberal thought was apparent at the 1895 Manchester Conference, by way…"

Quaker beliefs.

Matthew Callow replied to Sarah Spencer's discussion 'What's your experience of Quaker learning online?' in the group Online Quaker Studies
"I'm 3/4 of the way through the fist module ("Quaker theology in context") of the Post Graduate Certificate in Quaker Studies with Lancaster University in the UK. Very good expert teaching from Ben Pink Dandelion, Jon Kershner, and…"

Matthew Callow replied to Howard Brod's discussion 'Why do Liberal Friends not Record Ministers or Spiritual Gifts?' in the group Liberal Quakers
"That sounds good and very conducive for the inward communion. Meeting Houses in UK scatter Bibles, Advises & Queries and Quaker Faith & Practices around, and this can be a massive distraction for those who struggle to center-down. When…"

Matthew Callow replied to Howard Brod's discussion 'Why do Liberal Friends not Record Ministers or Spiritual Gifts?' in the group Liberal Quakers
"This Meeting House, in Wallingford-on-Thames UK, missed out on / was spared the 19th c. "upgrade" as the number of f/Friends in the UK got very low then (I think 12-13,000), and there were no Meetings for Worship for 40-50yrs here so it…"

Matthew Callow replied to Howard Brod's discussion 'Why do Liberal Friends not Record Ministers or Spiritual Gifts?' in the group Liberal Quakers
"Thomas Swain (I think he was a former PYM Clerk) traveled in the Ministry in the UK almost a decade ago to help f/Friends here discern and liberate their spiritual gifts; he didn't go down to well in my Area (Monthly) Meeting. It was certainly…"

Matthew Callow replied to Howard Brod's discussion 'Why do Liberal Friends not Record Ministers or Spiritual Gifts?' in the group Liberal Quakers
"I think Britain Yearly Meeting stopped recording Ministers c. 1924 as it was felt to inhibit the Free Ministry; there are a number of redundant Minister's Benches here in the UK."
