Max Carter: Scripture written before homosexuality understood

Max Carter: Scripture written before homosexuality understood. In terms of homosexuality, I suspect that most scripture was written way before we had an understanding of the term - and the nature of human sexuality. Most clergy are products of their own culture and boxed sets of perceptions. Our personal experiences are limited. Our logic is often faulty and our reason… Continue

Tony Lowe: A Year of Peace

Tony Lowe: A Year of Peace. Maybe the time has come for us all to follow the example of convergent Friends and focus on those things around which we can find unity rather than those which divide us. One thing that unites us is that we all still believe there is a great work in the world to be done by Friends. But can we not accomplish more working together than any one group of us can on… Continue

Max Carter: No better place for mosque than near Ground Zero

Max Carter: No better place for mosque than near Ground Zero. What better place for a mosque than near a place where some misguided followers of the faith corrupted its teachings and committed unspeakable acts? It can be a place where the true principles of the faith can be taught - with a powerful object lesson a short distance away of what may happen when the… Continue

Tony Lowe: Taking up residency where God's love flows freely

Tony Lowe: Taking up residency where God's love flows freely. It’s not an easy place to be. People on both sides are often disappointed or angry or no longer even consider you a friend because they perceive you are not in total agreement with them, or don’t understand why you have to look at issues from more than one side. It’s not an easy place to be because it demands that you act and… Continue

Max Carter: "Christianity" not necessary when you have Christ

Max Carter: "Christianity" not necessary when you have Christ. If this Real Presence is, indeed, available here and now... then no further "notions" are necessary; the very author of the script of what it means to be a faithful follower is on the stage! In that sense, then, "Christianity" is not necessary - we have Christ. "Religion" is not necessary, we have… Continue

Mark Wutka : time and service at North Carolina Conservative

Mark Wutka : time and service at North Carolina Conservative. When the registrar announced the numbers during the last business session, we learned that visitors accounted for a little more than 20% of those in attendance. On one hand, this says that a lot of people are hungry for what NCYM-C has to offer, but on the other hand it suggests that many within the yearly meeting don't realize what a… Continue

Tony Lowe: What Ifs, and trusting the Spirit Instead of Ourselves

Tony Lowe: What Ifs, and trusting the Spirit Instead of Ourselves. When I look at the history of the Society of Friends, I am always bothered by the great What If. What if Friends in 1827 had said ok, we have two somewhat different understandings of the basis of Quaker spirituality, so let’s find a way to continue to work together so that our witness to the Kingdom of God… Continue

Exploring the Meaning and Purpose of Quaker Structure

Scott Wagoner: Exploring the Meaning and Purpose of Quaker Structure. I recognize that at some point early Friends established structure and organization. My sense, though, is that their vision was that the structure would serve the vision and mission and not that the mission was to serve the structure. Quakers often seem in survival mode these days and in that mode there is a… Continue
