New(ish) blog: Brian Drayton’s Amor vincat
From the about page: “I also hope from time to time to write brief tracts, which might be usable by Friends for education forums or as leaflets for visitors. I may also post pieces by others that I want to draw to readers’ attention.”
What’s a Quaker for? World domination or boutique option?
Brian Drayton on the purpose of our religious society: “What does make sense to me, and what I discover I’ve been thinking all along, is that Quakerism is a probe, a test-bed, or experimental garden plot, whose purpose is to understand something like, “What can we say about living a human life in harmony with the Gospel, and avowedly under the present guidance of the Light?””
A better word for ‘outreach’?
Mark Russ on using “testimony” in a more authentic way: I believe that being a Quaker is not about being good, but about being faithful. It’s not the simplicity of our homes, or the peace marches we go on that make us Quakers, it’s our faithfulness to the Spirit as discerned by the gathered Meeting.
