I am in Michigan with my father, who is in Hospice and slowly dying. My family (mother, sisters, extended family) has come together to support him and someone has been with him 24/7 since he came to hospice last week.
I find the experience an inspiration. My father, has been good natured and aware of what is happening to him. He is a devout Methodist, and is at peace with his approaching death. He speaks about his desire to cross over to be his family (his mother, father and brothers)…Continue

Well, I continue to grew in understanding of Quakerism. I continue to like what I read & experience. I continue to attend Meetings for Worship and enjoy each moment I am there and wishing I could attend more of them.
A couple of weeks ago, I was oncall for work. So I sat in the lobby with the greeter, just in case the cell phone went off.
My girlfriend has come with me too and she is enjoying the Meetings and is looking over some of the pamphlets I…Continue

Well, I finished much of "Friends for 300 years". I really enjoyed it and learned a lot from it. I am now starting to read the Pacific Yearly Meeting's Faith and Practice. I also have a copy of Encounter with silence by John Punshon. So far I am enjoying the Faith and Practice so far.
I am now interested in what the different traditions of Quakers are.
I would be interested in going to a conservative Quaker meeting... just to see how it differs from the ones I…Continue

I find podcasts a wonderful way to learn about something... in this Quakers and Quakerism. I hope those inclined will continue to produce more podcasts as the ones I have listened to are great & I really get a sense of Quakerism through them.
I listen to podcasts regularly, while I am commuting. I was listening to podcasts by the Unity folks (via Unity.fm from iTunes). While I choose not to follow in their tradition, I did learned a lot and their thoughts & ideas have…Continue

I am happy to share my views on Quakerism with you, but I do need to clarify one thing. I have always worshiped among liberal Friends. My tendencies are towards the Conservative branch, but I have never lived near one of their meetings.
I am unapologetically Christocentric. The new Convergent Friends movement is also a big influence.I study early Friends writings and would like to see the liberal branch get back in touch with it's roots.
If you would like to contact a Conservative Friend, might I suggest Isabel Penraeth. I have found her entries to be clear and thoughtful.
As I said early, please feel free to ask me anything.
