A young Samuel Bownas felt accused during worship in 1696 when Ann Wilson rose a spoke the following message: “A traditional Quaker, [if] thou comest to Meeting as thou went from it and goes from it as thou came to it, but art no better for thy coming[—]what Wilt thou do in the End?” In 1998, Kenneth Carroll asked us the same question. Carroll, through his own experience, is quite certain that when we come to worship with an openness to the spirit, with a firm belief that God will manifest God’s self in “our own lives, minds, and hearts,” then we, too, can leave meeting “touched by God.” This is one of the many Pendle Hill pamphlets that may take us deeper in our approach to meeting. Pendle Hill pamphlet series subscriptions begin at $25.00 (5 pamphlets a year).

This is an account of a number of Quaker meetings where the author and the meeting received a powerful spiritual message. It is nice, but the power doesn't seem to quite come through.
