I was scheduled to have a blog post go up on the QuakerYouth blog last week, and since it happened to be the start of National Quaker Week in the UK (and apparently Australia too), I decided to write about British Friends. Emily was on vacation in NC though and didn’t post it in time, […]

On a more upbeat note, I just saw a fascinating article in the Globe about how all this to-do about contaminated products from China tends to forget that American capitalists did the same kind of shady things, or worse, when we were industrializing in the 19th century:
Taking a page from the British, who had […]
At times like these — when you notice you’re being linked to by what looks like a great blog written from Ecuador — I wish I knew more than the most rudimentary Spanish. An excerpt, from “Mi espiritualidad post-religiosa”:
Así entonces escogí considerarme cuáquero [= Quaker] (luego se salir del colegio), todo el que crea en […]
Keen observers of this blog (all five of you) may have already noticed that I’ve added sections for humanist and atheist blogs to my sidebar under all the Quaker links, as well as a section for Unitarian Universalist blogs. I may blog a bit about UUs soon, after I visit my third UU church, though […]
Briefly: Jez has a post about convinced vs. “birthright” membership — the latter concept being one of my pet peeves about Quaker culture (as I commented there).
I just said I wouldn’t be posting. But I am, because during my readings of other Quaker blogs, it has surprised me how much some Friends in liberal meetings seem to not fully appreciate which branch they’re in, where it’s headed, and what that all means.

I just started a new blog as a place to put everything I think about that doesn’t seem suitable for Quaker blog, called Evolt. I’ll write about politics and culture of all sorts there. I’ll explain the name later (there, not here). In case you’re interested, I’m pasting the text of the first post here, […]
I haven’t blogged here for awhile, in one way or another mostly due to having attended the recent Young Adult Friends gathering in Burlington, New Jersey (photos | my photos). Met a lot of good people there. Hope to blog about it soon.
Right now though I want to highlight a post by Micah (who I […]
In case you didn’t see it, a recent post by my new favorite Quaker blogger Richard M called “Of Athiests and Onions” is very interesting. In a nutshell, he explains how, from a theistic perspective, many Friends who describe themselves as nontheist may in fact be “theistic” in some deeper sense. I’ll save my comments […]
The rumblings about the Quaker blogosphere continue. . .
Most recently, Liz Opp suggests that the Quaker blogosphere has become like a “popcorn meeting” — a meeting where there is too much gabbing and not enough deep silence and listening. (Cf. my two posts on the Q-blogosphere becoming overwhelming.)
I want to make a proposal, […]
