What is it now thou canst say?”<br /> <br /> Did you read the book of Love, and do you have faith in God above?<br /> Did the Spirit tell you so?<br /> Well, do you believe in Inner Light? Did Jesus tell you not to fight?<br /> And, can you teach me how Friends decide, real slow?<br /> <br /> Well I know that you’re in unity when I see you sit so quietly.<br /> You might drop off to sleep, but I know that worship is deep.<br /> Ooh, I was a young urban professional, and I’d seen my last confessional,<br /> But I knew I was impressional the day I came to Friends. I started singing:<br /> <br /> Chorus<br /> <br /> Did you hear the Newport news, what with George Fox sitting in the pews,<br /> And the Spirit of the Lord was over all?<br /> Well, for three hundred and fifty years we’ve been meeting there and meeting here,<br /> Always seeking to discern our corporate call.<br /> <br /> But we’ve not always heard it clearly, and those enslaved have suffered dearly.<br /> As we discerned intensely, John Woolman helped immensely.<br /> So slavery’s days have seen their ends, but did we fully make amends?<br /> And were those freed as fit for Friends? We still have work to do.<br /> <br /> Chorus<br /> <br /> “To scripture” cried the Gurneyite, as Wilburs followed Inner Light,<br /> A split was underway.<br /> And when Eli and Sybil departed, a Friends school in Ramallah started.<br /> We were going global all the way.<br /> <br /> But when independent meetings came and Rufus Jones had made his name,<br /> We found that reuniting was better far than fighting.<br /> And though we were in unity, we still had much diversity,<br /> And when we talked theology, we had to find the way.<br /> <br /> Chorus<br /> <br /> To Jubilee we came this year, God's quiet voice for us to hear,<br /> The Spirit over us to sway.<br /> We needed to discover fear and do a different thing this year,<br /> Never easy when the Spirit has its day.<br /> <br /> But as we sat in stillness there, community for us to bear,<br /> And not a word was spoken. The boundaries all were broken.<br /> I can't remember if I cried when that sense of separation died,<br /> But something touched me deep inside, the day I found my guide. We were singing:<br /> <br /> Chorus (two times) Quaker Video and electronic outreach tag:www.quakerquaker.org,2009-03-21:2360685:Video:6787 2009-03-21T15:25:56.849Z Martin Kelley https://www.quakerquaker.org/profile/MartinKelley <a href="https://www.quakerquaker.org/video/quaker-video-and-electronic"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="90" src="https://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/1509223553?profile=original&amp;width=120&amp;height=90" width="120"></img><br /> </a> <br></br><b>An interview with Raye Hodgson of <a href="http://www.ohioyearlymeeting.org/">Ohio Yearly Meeting Conservative</a>, who serves on their Electronic Outreach Committee.</b><br></br> <br></br> <b>Raye:</b> Ohio Yearly Meeting holds our yearly meeting in Barnesville Ohio--some people know us as those Barnesville folks.

We have an electronic Outreach Committee and that includes the oversight and ministry associated with our website. We spend time thinking about how to open up to people who might be interested in Friends' ways and might want to know more about us whether or not they've ever read the Journal of George Fox. We're trying to expand our witness, if you will.<br /> <br /> One of the questions that has come up in this electronic outreach group is: what types of communication or video are useful for someone to get to know us but also respectful of the fact that we do worship and that worship is a spiritually intimate time. We're trying to bridge and deal with respecting the worshippers, the Friends themselves, to not put on a performance and yet to try to communicate what it is that is edifying in practice and worship.<br /> <br /> <b>Martin:</b> How do you give newcomers a taste of Quakers without directing it too much? If you just have that silent empty box it's hard for newcomers to know what should be filling that box.<br /> <br /> <b>Raye:</b> One of the things Friends have done for hundreds of years is to publish, to keep journals and to share that. But that's not all there is to the Friends experience. There are those quiet times and those moments of ministry that we believe are Spirit-inspired. Many of us wish we could give people a little taste of that because that doesn't show up in a lot of published writings. That spontaneous and timely, and at times prophetic, witness that we see in our Meetings. We have considered digital video as a way to do that.<br /> <br /> <b>Martin:</b> I love the video possibilities here. Video can be a way of reaching out to more people.<br /> <br /> <b>Raye:</b> It's not just anything that can be written. Certainly the writings that have been published are very helpful in getting some sort of a glimmer of where we have been, or in some cases where we are headed or where we are. But there is nothing like that experience of being with Friends in meeting. It doesn't always happen but there are these moments called a covered meeting or a gathered meeting where everybody seems to be in the same place spiritually and when seems to be messages and gifts coming through people. That's difficult to get across.<br /> <br /> We're hoping that with video we can discuss these kinds of things after the fact. We don't want to turn it into a spectator sport or performance.<br /> <br /> <b>Martin:</b> Authenticity is a key part of the Quaker message. You're not practicing what you're going to say for First Day or Sunday. You're sitting there and waiting for that immediate spirit to come upon you.<br /> <br /> <b>Raye:</b> We don't know when that will happen. There are meetings where everybody is very quiet, where there's a sense of that spirit and unity but it may be an outwardly quiet meeting. I have been in meetings where someone stood up and began to sing their message or a psalm or someone had a wonderful sermon that was perfect for the moment. These things happen but we don't know when they will.
