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!
