Quakers are where you find them
by Carol Ciscel

Often I come across Quakers unexpectedly, especially in books. This time the book was In Search of Stones by M. Scott Peck who also wrote The Road Less Traveled. The stones he was in search of were in the British Isles, so perhaps I should have expected to encounter Quakers, but when a chapter titled Religion came along I had no idea I was going to be treated to a capsule history of George Fox and an example of Fox’s continuing impact.

Quakerly or Quackery

by Khyber Daniel

Two Quakers are walking down a road. One is railing against the injustices of society. The other is having a hard time keeping a straight face. The first one stumbles and the other catches him. The complaining Quaker lights up with gratitude, and says, “I am so blessed after the fall.” The second says, “I caught you, there was no fall.” And the first one says, “You are right, there is no original sin.” And that’s how Quakers lived without theology.

On Fifth Sunday, a morning when often committees gather to meet before worship, the Nominating Committee provided a continental breakfast. Nominating will serve breakfast again on Fifth Sunday in September. All are welcome, including committee members and the committee-curious.
