QuakerQuaker This Week, Fourth Month 15 2012

Some post-Easter reflections on the Quaker Blogosphere. Patricia Barber writes of a Land of Saturdays, where  we've embraced the life and death of Christ, but haven't yet experienced the joy and certainty of the Resurrection. Brent Bill talks about the sounds of nails on Good Friday, and Micah Bales argues that Resurrection without the Cross is dead

  • 'Alumni protest has embroiled my alma mater, George Fox University, in controversy.'
  • "It seems to me there are three essen­tial com­po­nents to the Jesus biog­ra­phy: the teacher, the mar­tyr and the res­ur­rected Spirit. When we dis­miss or dis­count one piece, we limit our under­stand­ing and moti­va­tion to act."
  • We can also encourage a dialog between Friends with diverse paths within Quakerism. I suspect that most, if not all Friends who participate with Quaker Universalists are part of the more liberal, unprogrammed branches of Friends. We can take the lead fostering sharing among Friends from the many branches of the Quaker tree. How can we be more inclusive? Quaker universalism
  • There is much we can do to pro­mote com­mu­nity aware­ness of Friends (aka “out­reach”), but I sus­pect the great­est effect of our efforts is internal–raising our own con­scious­ness about how to be vis­i­ble and welcoming.
  • I’d like to puncture the silence and compile a more fine-grained picture. I invite Friends across the continent to report on the state of the discussion of homosexuality in their Yearly Meeting.
