  1. At The Gathering this past week, I had this epiphany: There is an intersection with my work as a clinician, my work as a teacher, and the work of a clerk: creating an environment into which an invitation can be extended, and, once entered, there is no escape except through change.

    I pondered: perhaps this happens not only in my work roles, but in my daily life, with every encounter that I have. Listening to this video today confirms that notion.

    My whole present life has been lived this way: that God was in me, in everyone and everything that came my way, and that came before and is beyond my way. Through many explorations of different religious organizations – from Catholicism in which I was raised through the Unitarianism to which I finally gravitated, and to the Society of Friends, which I now call home.

    To have this synchronously affirmed, again, nourishes me on my path. Thanks for this one…timing was perfect.

  2. This is a good introduction to living a Quaker life daily. I would love to see Noah go further in a few more videos.
