As Others See Us

I have long been fascinated with the observations of people who visit Friends Meetings for the first time. In my article Do Messages in Meeting Really Come From God I quote at length from Thomas Merton's acount in The Seven Story Mountain of his visit to Flushing Meeting.

In 1999, a friendly article appeared in Spirituality and Health Magazine about a visit to our own Fifteenth Street Meeting by a reporter named Rosemary Cunningham. It is now online at Visiting a Quaker Meeting. I've been meaning for a long time to write something about this article and my reaction to it. I may not get to that very soon, but I have inserted the link here in the hopes that others may take a look at the article and make any comments that seem appropriate.
