Linda J. Wilk replied to Nathan Swift's discussion 'planned/organic sense of community' in the group Community
"Hello Friend! Our meeting has also done a number of community building activities. Starting with Friendly 8s, we evolved into Friendly Circles, Circles of Trust (smaller more intimate sharing), Friends and the Arts, a Seekers group for those wanting…"

Nathan Swift commented on Alice M Yaxley's blog post 'Why call yourself a Quaker? Why go to a Quaker Meeting House building?'
"I'm not well qualified to answer, but will do the best I can. No movement of the Spirit exists in isolation and there will be a trail of pioneers expressing the same or very similar thoughts. If anything, I think the Emerging Church differs in…"

""My question is two-fold: If it is not dogmatic, exclusive and doctrine driven, what is there to attract Christians to the group? Secondly, what happens when you attract Christians who want to make the group dogmatic, exclusive and…"

""Still not partial to the thing as a whole, but that's just me. " No, you would not be; it is after all, still Christian. The point is that it is not the dogmatic, exclusive, doctrine driven Christianity you are used to and seem to…"

Nathan Swift commented on Alice M Yaxley's blog post 'Why call yourself a Quaker? Why go to a Quaker Meeting House building?'
"Aha! Maybe we are coming at the communication problem. I see the "emergent church" as arriving at a quite different "place" from "most protestant groups," so I guess I have to ask what you see as "that place?"…"

Thanks for your very kind welcome, Nathan.

I've been slow to sign up here as a member, because I'm really not in line with the stated philosophical underpinnings of the site ("Quaker Christian renewal in the manner of convergent Friends"). But this forum does seem to be emerging as a gathering place for lively and broad-based Quaker conversation, along with Bill Samuel's forum at quakerinfo.com.
