Plain in the city

A plain Quaker folk singer with a Juris Doctorate in his back pocket, salt in his blood, and a set of currach oars in the closet, Ulleann Pipes under his arm, guitar on his back, Anglo Irish baggage, wandering through New York City ... in constant amaze. Statement of Faithfulness. As a member of the Quaker Bloggers Ad Hoc Committee I affirm that I will be faithful to the Book of Discipline of my Meeting 15th Street Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.

Peace as a Friend

Peace for a Friend carries with it a lack of judgmentalism which makes it a very special witness. I write this in reply to the kind posting of Friend RW Spryszak on Fox and Terrorism, (comment to the last post).

Thee may consider the story in the my post Friday, December 10, 2004 A STATEMENT OF URBAN PLAIN about the Palestinians and Quakers meeting in Washington.

At the outset, let me say that the story does not equate Palestinian politics with terrorism. There are terrorists on both sides in that conflict and people of great heart and will on both sides as well. But, this is a story about love in the face of great anger. BUT Love fills that void of evil that is hate and nothing else will. Thee cannot stop enough hearts to make yourself safe, but thee MAY heal enough hearts through love.
