re: Convergent Friends
On 11/16/09, Robin M posted The Convergent Conversation Continues and on 11/23, Liz Opp wrote about "how the Convergent conversation addresses certain topics." In the comments on the latter there was discussion about digging into the Quaker tradition & whether or not that is helpful. I've found that among our liberal meeting, most are "converts," i.e., we come from other denominations or spiritual practices or from no practice at all. So, learning about Quaker tradition has helped me, & seemingly others, to be more open to the Spirit and its leadings. Sometimes simply learning the language (Quaker and/or Christian) helps us talk openly with each other.
