Who I am
God asked Ezekiel, "Can these bones live?"
I read the writings of the early Friends and asked God, "Can't these old bones live?"
Ezekiel's valley filled with living beings.
God told me, "Not their bones, but yours must live today."
God told Ezekiel, "The people shall know I am God when they are brought forth from their grave."
"The day is coming and now is," said Jesus, "when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son. And those who will hear shall come forth from their grave."
This blog, then, is an invitation to hear.

Enter by the narrow gate; for the gate is wide and the way is easy, that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to … Continue reading
I recently read a comment on another blog wherein the commentator maintained that Quakers are overly-spiritual, to put it nicely. This has gotten me wondering, not for the first time, just what do people mean by the related terms spirituality, … Continue reading
