"I am curious to know what rituals Conservative Friends hold dear, William, when you talk about "ritual flattening."  Perhaps I am a Liberal Quaker because I do not like "ritual". I found it disturbing even to the extent it…"

|Marcia: We really never did finish our dialogue!  But our discussion stimulated my thinking about the spoken ministry.  I would like to send you my paper on "Wilburite Quaker Worship: A Ritual Analysis" (not for circulation) when I get it "finished"???  My wife complained that I keep wanting to revise my papers, even after they get published!
