Description

Like many Friends, Benjamin Lloyd is deeply concerned about the future of our Religious Society...In this essay, he presents his own creative ideas and encouragement for a reinvigoration of our meeting communities. Which of our traditions and practices should we renew? And where are the places where continuing revelation calls us to be open to the winds of change that will come with the next generation of Quaker leaders?--Back cover.

What does it mean to be a Quaker? Do we "rubber stamp" membership applications? How do YA Friends operate their society? Lloyd pressupposes the shrinking of RSoF which is belied by the robustness of Baltimore Yearly Meeting

affirmation we realize in being visible as Quakers, commitment to our testimony of community and what this means, and caring attentiveness by the meeting to the members' needs and spiritual nurture. He speaks of looking for, developing, and supporting Quaker leaders who know and use Quaker process to help Friends support each other, discern our way forward, and come to loving unity. He speaks passionately of supporting young Friends as they lead a way to a 21at century Religious Society of Friends.
