InOBU BS: The Quakers (114* d) RE: BS: The Quakers 18 Jan 11

Hi Penny and all...

Although it is true there are a greater percent programed meetings, it depends where you go. In the New York Quaker Quarter, NYC, is majority unprogramed and Liberal. This is true in a number of places in the North East.

We have a programed and concervative Meeting in our Quarter and we feel dear to each other and sometimes worship together. There is a trend in young Friends towards Christocentric and even fundimentalism, as it is in fashion in the these "third awakening" times. but, as with other fashions, it may not last, as many of these young Friends grow, they find the contradictions in the idolitry aspect, often which contradicts the simple message of Rabbi Yeshua ben Joseph's message.

I find much of the courage and light has gone out of our faith... when I think of the active way we worked against the Vietnam war, and now, with no draft, many young Friends seem to be inured to many of the evils of our times, and even tollarate them in our Meetings.

A message once came to me in Meeting that the road to hell is much more often paved with pragmatism than ever it was with evil. I truely quaked at that message - it was a painful light in dark places in our Meetings.

Thine ever dearly
