a petition about Keystone, and a question about integrity and witness

Posted on 3rd mo. 20, 2013 at 6:38am 0 Comments

I hope it's appropriate to post this here although it's not a uniquely Quaker issue...

With just over a month left in the final comment period on the Keystone XL pipeline decision, I was surprised to find that there were no petitions about it on the White House site, so I started one.  I've tried to acknowledge in it both the public policy concerns I have and the fact that the way I live my life, the way most of our lives, still depend on the kind of dirty energy which I'm…

I just realized that the comment feature had been malfunctioning on my blog, where this post has been on the main page for a week.  Comments are working now (I think) and if anyone still has time and interest I am hoping to hear the thoughts of other Friends. 

whose burdens do we bear?

“Bear ye one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” –Galatians 6:2

“Every man shall bear his own burden.” --Galatians 6:5



These two teachings have been on my mind as my Catholic Worker community of Quakers holds its annual review/planning/discernment session. I'm trying to understand what I can and cannot do for other people and what I may and may not ask of them. The long version of this is on my blog at…

another new Quaker blog

After enjoying other Friends' blogs for a few years I decided to start one of my own at www.livingasifthetruthwastrue.blogspot.com

Hello Joanna!

I am glad you accepted my invitation and look forward to being thy friend!!! Some of my Scottish relatives were Hoyts from Scotland and I don't know if you might be related.

My hobbies include reading fiction and writing fiction and poems if I find enough time. And I adore cats! Do you like cats?

Thanks again for being my friend!

Blessings to thee,

Hilda

I apologise, Friend Joanna, for being silent for so long. I have been through about three months of insomnia, despondency, and then I recently faced oral surgery: three wisdom teeth extracted! I wanted to thank thee kindly for accepting my invitation some time ago!! I hope to get to know thee better. Blessings and peace to thee in Christ's Light! Timothy

Hello hello!

Nearly finished my PhD now. Had a baby daughter last year! It's hard work trying to do both at the same time.

How are you? You are one of the shining memories of WGYF for me, I still think of what an impression you made on me with your combination of groundedness and freshness.
