Is a way of steping back a few steps from this society we live in and is saying. I have a diffrent  set of  values a diffrent way of looking at life to the society around me.

About Me

Hello. My name is Sandra and I have been attending a liberal meeting in Maryland (USA)for about two months. Prior to that I had not attended any kind of religious gathering for more than 20 years. A little more than a year ago I became interested in Plain dress and began to dress Plain on a part time basis; I found this gave me a sense of peace and a new-found spirituality.  I now read my Bible (almost) every day, and my meeting does have a monthly Bible class which I attend.

 

A Plain friend turned me on to this forum and I welcome any help and support the friends here can give me. I appreciate that I have a lot of catching up to do, but on the plus side I hail from Yorkshire, so maybe Quakerism is in my blood somewhere!

About Me

Hello Everyone, 

Any Christian Quaker visiting the Twin Cities, please contact me.  We may have a guest bed available... or floor space.   Ask Stillwater Meeting for my phone number.

I am Teri.  We live in Saint Paul, Minnesota.  I am a Christian Quaker.  My first understanding of Christianity came from the Presbyterians; my family background is Scottish and Scot-Irish though I was born in California from American parents that moved west from the panhandle region and the deep south.  My older brother became a Christian through the Quakers and then I began attending a Friends Church (Rose Drive) while I was a teen.  Later I lived in Barnesville, Ohio and attended the Stillwater Monthly Meeting, a Conservative Friends Meeting.  Several years have passed since I moved to Minnesota for employment and I still miss Stillwater.  I love the conserving of the unprogrammed worship, thus the word conservative means something outside of what many may first think when they see this label in our name.  I am a member of Stillwater though I live a two day drive away.  Currently I am attending a very small Mennonite church usa that is seeking to have more intentional community throughout the week.

 

As a young adult, I left the country for Bible training in Canada before working and living in Iran and Afghanistan and then Europe.  I worked with a Christian mission.  When I returned to the USA I went back to university and eventually became a social worker / MSW.  I worked for several years with the poor and mentally ill.  Today I am raising my granddaughter and working just part time as a manager of two apartment buildings.  This gives me the wonderful opportunity to write.  It is a goal of mine to have a novelistic memoir completed and ready to publish one way or another... most likely self-publishing.  I am writing it mainly for my grandchild.

 

Here in Minnesota there are no Christ-Centered Friends Meetings.  I depend on the internet and the postings of others to feel connected to Christian Quakers / Friends.  If anyone is planning a journey to the frozen north, let me know and I may be able to meet up with you for fellowship. We may be able to provide meals and a place to sleep.

 

Sincerely, Teri

About Me

For some time now I have followed the conversation on the Conservative Friend list server and have always been delighted in its Christ centered testimony.  I look forward to continuing in following the dialogue and when time permits I might make a comment or two.

 

Although I am not a Quaker - I do have much sympathy for the Conservative Friend Quaker group due to its clear testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ as the only hope we have for all eternity.  I myself have been a Christian believer for many years and come from a Protestant upbringing as a youth.  Today I consider myself a Christain with no particular denominational affiliation.  It is in him (Jesus Christ) that I have put my hope.  Church denominations have taken a back seat in my agenda.

 

I believe in church community as the gathering of God's children at the feet  of him who is the headstone and inspiration of all Christian association - namely Jesus Christ.  I believe that it is only by his direction that we can hope for success in bringing fruit and glory to his name - of which is our only real purpose in this life as designed by our Creator himself.  I believe that if we give ear to the Holy Spirit (the Light as many of you say) within us and follow His direction we can participate in a joy and peace that passes all understanding - continually.

 

I pray that this forum will add to the glory of the name of Jesus Christ and that God will bless it's activity richly.

 

In Christ,
George

 I believe it was in 1990 that I attended Ohio Yearly Meeting (Conservative).  I remember I enjoyed it and Bill Tabor spoke on Gospel Order.  I am now widowed after 36 years of marriage and looking for a new relationship.  I started out Catholic, tried Southern Baptist, and have been a member of Chester River Monthly Meeting since 12month1976.  I am currently Director of Pastoral care at our local hospital and facilitate adult Bible study at a

local Episcopalian church, among other ministries.  When not entangled in the computer, I keep house for two cats and knit sweaters for children.
