Way back, during the beginning stages of Friend Speaks My Mind, I got in touch with Mark Helpsmeet, the host of Northern Spirit Radio in Eau Claire, Wisconsin.  As far as I know, Mark is the only liberal Friend in the United States to host a radio program under the care of a meeting.  The intent of Northern Spirit Radio is to "provide religious and spiritual radio programming" and to "shine the Light where folks too seldom look, and encourage joy and energy for the physical work of bringing Divine Love to the planet."  Pretty rad, really. 

 

Mark agreed to feature my show, "Spirit in the Digital Age," on his "Spirit in Action" program, and I've added a bit of material to fit the 55 minute format, namely an interview with Chris Pifer and Aaron Crosman on what makes a website "Quaker."  What do Quakers and Quaker organizations bring to the technology table?  How do we use and develop our websites to best serve the particular needs of Friends?  What role does deliberation and Quakerly intention play in our relationship to the web?  As I found out, there is more going on "behind the scenes" than you might think... 


Listen and find out!
