About Me

My name is Sue, I am 54 years old, married with two grown up sons. I live in Ely, near Cambridge, UK.  We have two dogs and three Bengal cats (two brown spotteds and one blue eyed marbled snow) who tend to run our lives if we let them.  I have been a Christian for many many years and became very disheartened by the control of the leaders in some churches and the rot finally set in when fundamentalism started to become more widespread in the UK.  I happened upon Quakers over two years ago quite by chance (or not!) and read all I could about them. I attended my local liberal meeting for a while and attended BYM also. I found I was unable to sit happily with the liberal views expressed and after several Christian attenders were made to feel unwelcome I stopped attending too.  By this time, to my joy, I had made contact with several Conservative Quakers in the UK. Two years on, I am still convinced that this is the path I am to travel and haven't had any misgivings.  I have read a lot of material on this site and thought I already was a member!  However, I wasn't, but am delighted to be so now!

About Me

Kevin and Friends,

 

I'm the only Friend in my area and due to distance and economics I've never attended a Friend's meeting.  Lately, Christ has put it on my heart to put an anchor down in the same waters as the Original Friends this body conserves.  As a Quaker novice I look forward to sharing silence, inspiration, knowledge, wisdom and encouragement with seasoned Friends and everyone.  I'm 55 with a right shoulder that has been injured 3 times, our county poverty index is 20%, and only 2 to 3% of men 50 and over are hired in Texas leaving me unemployed with 3 children 19, 21 and 26 years old.  Please put me in the Light soon for finding work to earn funds for my family, to drive to meeting and if

Christ be willing even for someday getting the honor of dating a kind, positive SOF lady.

About Me

I am a child of God with no formal affiliations at this time.  I consider myself to be a Christian Quaker in spirit for about 5 years now.   Would join a Conservative Quaker Meeting in a heartbeat if one was local to me.

 

I am married with 3 children and living in NJ.  Due to chronic illness, I do not get out every Firstday, but when I do, I alternate between Buckingham Meeting, Pa and my husband's non-denominational church. I am a Speech-Language Specialist and teacher come home to educate my own children.

 

I am one of the initial founders of Quaker Faith and Fellowship online as I was seeking fellowship and worship online when unable to get out.  I continue with moderator status today, though am seeking ways to connect with Friends who are Christ followers.  I also am a Friend with a concern to seek ways to meld and promote the love of the variations of Friends together. 

 

I appreciate the opportunity to be a part of this forum and pray that God would bless all of you.

 

In Friendship and Christ,

Jan Lyn

About Me

I am new to Quakerism and am hoping to start a Conservative meeting in my area.  I have been reading on the Conservative Friends website on how to go about getting some people together to begin one.  Any ideas from anyone on how to get started. I am sure most people in my area think the RSOF is a thing of the past.  Does anyone know of any literature or info I could give them so they understand a little better?

About Me

I am 45 yrs old, married with 3 children ages 25, 13 &10. We homeschool using the Rod & Staff curriculum (love it) it is published by the Mennonites.  I enjoy serving our Heavenly Father, family, gardening, raising chickens,woodworking, model trains & many other things to do with living a simple life. We are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and I enjoy learning about all religions That serve our Heavenly Father (GOD). I have started 2 blogs although I don't get to post as often as I would like. www.ldsfarmerboy.blogspot.com  & www.peekspropaneapplianceservice.blogspot.com . I think GOD has put each of us here for a purpose and we should serve him and do his will. I also believe that we should all take care of this wonderful earth that he has let us borrow while we are here.
