The Case of Old Rondelay vs. Old Bugbear

O.R.: Not to subject the Court of Quaker Opinion to a long song and dance, we strive for rhythm and rhyme in the individual experience of the sacred.

O.B.: Deaf, however, to the eruption and thunderclap of the sacred - that you are too busy justifying your experience of.

O.R.: God is heard in the soft breeze and in the silence.

O.B.: Yet, God is reverenced, OR not, in the cross-purposes of the individual life.

O.R.: Obviously, we are not playing with the same playbook.

O.B.: OR, singing with the same songbook, namely prophetic ministry.

O.R.: Your old ministry is not our new concern for self-actualization.

O.B.: Nor self-surrender, for if we were a bug, you would squish us or a bear, you could shot us. Rather, we are the bugbear for the individual experience of the sacred.
