"Hi Sarah, What are you up to on August 26? Friends of Jesus Fellowship, which my good friend Micah Bales and I helped to found, is having a gathering in Maryland. It would be great if you could come, and childcare is available! What do you think?"

"I see Quakers collectively as mostly bumbling, well-intentioned, but somewhat clueless. What hardens a Friend in a good way, in the sense of developing discipline, is to wear that Quaker badge (which raises expectations) and then take on real…"

"A Good Quaker is Hard To Find"

The blog post that was sharing around today by Johan Maurer touched me on a deep level. One of my personal tenants of my faith has been to "die unto yourself everyday". Which I interpret to mean that every morning I must rise out of bed being humbled and needing to be aware of how much I don't know about how much I do not know. In my marriage, my mothering, my faith, and the world around me. My frustration on my path in Quakerism is this struggle to accept that the current Quaker think ( At…See More

"This speaks to me. What a wonderful Blog post!  For a long time I was "afraid" to talk about God. But the more I refused to the stronger the urge became. With my family I began to think, "I don't avoid certain topics because…"

Raising Quakers

I make it a point to thank each kiddo for coming to Meeting for Worship with Chaz and I every Sunday. I point out individual moments of joy and proud moments I observed as they interacted with Friends.I can't say that we wouldn't "make" them come if we felt they were skipping it too regularly BUT I do think it gives them ownership of their own responsibility to participate. Tonight when I thanked W for coming today I added that even though it might not be the most fun time ever for him, it…See More

Profile Information

About Me
Married to a birthright Quaker, Attender of Medford Meeting, and the humble secretary and fire putter-outer of the office at Medford Meeting.

I have a blog but it it's only in my head because really, most of this stuff shouldn't be said aloud much less written as permanent record.

Wow, big news. I'll be praying for your visit...I do hope the Lord covers your time together with His spirit, which leads to love, forgiveness and reconciliation. I have experience of how prayer can change relationships; I'm sure it took a lot of prayer already to get you to this point. I hope that it goes well. God willing, other opportunities to gather will present themselves soon!

Hi Sarah,

What are you up to on August 26? Friends of Jesus Fellowship, which my good friend Micah Bales and I helped to found, is having a gathering in Maryland. It would be great if you could come, and childcare is available! What do you think?

I am so thrilled you are benefiting from my blog, Sarah! I started it a year ago, but I only recently seem to be getting into a writing rhythm. I am learning even as I put together posts, so I hope you will keep reading and commenting and sharing your insights, which I very much appreciate. And yes, I hope our paths will cross as well! I live in Newark, nearly two hours away from you, but you never know...
