The author writes an eloquent and profound challenge to us. She thinks we as Quakers are deeply ill at ease in our privileged status. We accept it, we guard it, cling to it, promote it. But we are ill at ease in it; we realize we "stumble upon the dark mountains." Living in this contradiction, she thinks, is the root of most of the causes of our spiritual decline. We pay a penalty for giving in to hardness of heart and blindness of mind; it is increased hardness and blindness. She thinks this is the judgment under which the life of our meetings suffers. Quakerism is a radical criticism of contemporary culture. It sees contemporary progress and prosperity and institutions as a sickness. What will we do about this?
