Throughout our history, the people known as Friends (or Quakers) keep rediscovering an essential and enduring truth: There is one who speaks to our most basic needs and most significant hopes—Christ Jesus the Lord.

I am referencing the faith laboratory in which we get to practice (often with great regularity!) the essential disciplines...Read More
The notion that all our resources belong to God is integral to the message of simplicity. Where Roger excelled—and helped me find that missing and liberating element within simplicity—was in generosity. Roger loved to give, and he did so with a spirit of joy and gratitude for being able to partner in God’s work in the world.Read More
