Wisdom from the Quakers

"I think that we suffer from lack of biblical study both individually and in groups; I do not urge that this should be done in the regular gatherings for worship, but rather in groups during the week. To restrict our fellowship to the single hour on Sunday mornings is, under ordinary conditions, to impoverish our times of worship. The over-busyness resulting from the changed and difficult home conditions has, I fear, told on this side of our lives and does need distinct attention."

Joan Mary Fry, 1947

Quaker Faith & Practice, 2.78


Indirect thanks to Wess Daniels for periodically reminding me how much I like the Quakers.
