Well, here goes

I have decided to take the plunge and join the blogging world. I still have some misgivings about sending out missives. "I shot an arrow into the sky. I have no idea where it will land." My major themes will tend to be related to Quaker history and current thought, but my view derives from my experiences as a lifelong Friend who has worked with all 5 major categories of Friends in America, as well as those in Jamaica and Kenya, and occupied an endowed chair in Friends "Faith and Practice."  I also have studied and taught various sciences, "world religions," Biblical texts, Quaker History, and a series of courses I called "Search for Truth and Reality."

I hope to share as the "spirit leads" and the "way opens." I currently am intrigued by "convergent Friends," "universalist Friends," and many of the distractions/divisions evident in the various "brands" of Friends in the world.

I know this sounds like I obviously will overextend my knowledge and experiences. However, I feel led to continue my journey of examination of my own life and learning while sharing these explorations and leaving the results to the spirit of Christ which I understand to be available and working with everyone regardless of the "name" used for ultimate truth and reality

  1. Come on in, enjoy it. I am new blogger too. Am a writer by training but know we are now in the 21st century, so let's learn some new techniques. Smoke signals and cave scribbles were over taken too.
