The purpose of this blog is to help one another find the Way. It’s a place to learn from the experience and witness of Quakers, especially the first Friends, who collectively awakened to what they knew as the inward Light of Christ, a Light they testified is in us all. They modeled a radical way of faithfulness that has much to teach us today.
I’m a member of Chestnut Hill Friends Meeting in Philadelphia, which recognizes and supports my ministry of spiritual nurture. I am a Quaker and a Christian. In Amherst, Massachusetts in 1984, a year when I was seeking Truth with my whole heart, out under a starry sky, I experienced “the hidden unity in the Eternal Being.” Raised Catholic, I’ve studied and shared the spiritual practices of Jews, Hindus, Buddhists, Native Americans, and those of other traditions and no tradition. I seek to love God’s Mystery in all its manifestations.
We live in a time of profound change and God is calling us to something new. Learning from those who discovered the Way before us can help us heed God’s call today. It is my whole-hearted desire to help individuals and communities seek Truth and find the Way of love and peace. May we see a restored earth, enjoy the Peaceable Kingdom, and together grow into our inheritance as children of God.
