  1. I’ve bookmarked this, so that I’m ready to share it with others.
    This is the most touching, helpful resource I’ve found, pointing at the richness of our inner experience.
    A clear, simple explanation of something essentially beyond words that is at the core of a good life, as I understand it.

  2. Is it simpler than the scholars here make it? Is it as simple as us enjoying and feeling supported in a community of mostly friendship and feelings of safety? Do we need to immediately ascribe concepts of God to this? I feel it’s all the relative value of taking some time to perhaps meditate or at least slow down. No need to add God, let alone Christ.

  3. Would like to watch a full length motion picture on the life of George Fox and the primitive Quakers. Hasn’t the time come for it?
