Like many others, I left our yearly meeting exhausted and grateful. I have heard repeated inward warnings not to let the flow of days and works sweep away all the lessons and questions from this gathering.  I remember Anne Wilson’s warning to the young, unawakened Samuel Bownas: “Thou comest to meeting as thou went from it the last time, and goest from it as thou came to it, but art no better for thy coming; what wilt thou do in the end?”  I’d like not to deserve the same rebuke!

There  will follow at least three posts:

  1. Encounter with the suffering seed
  2. Love and judgment
  3. The unity of gifts:  White privilege/anti-racism and our climate testimony
