I'll Be Blogging One Fine Day
Meanwhile, though, the reason I've been quiet lately is that in addition to my job, my usual committee work in my meeting, and my regular family life I've been pouring a lot of effort into organizing, publicizing, and assisting with my meeting's Quakerism 101 class. This last will be over in late October and I may get some free time back. (I've learned not to promise things here, just to give educated guesses about what may happen).
Some posts I'd like to create are:
I.Further comment on the issues raised in earlier posts on Quakerism/Christianity/Universalism. Some possible titles here might be
A."What's In the Name? - Are our theological diffeences really only verbal?"
B."Is Universalism Too Narrow?"
II. A review of Licia Kuenning's book "Farmington! Farmington!" - working title of the review is "A Kinder, Gentler Apocalypse". Preview: I find the book troubling in some respects, but rich with real insights as well. It not only discusses, but also raises by its own existence some very knotty questions about what prophecy is, how to evaluate prophetic claims, and whether the spiritual validity of a prophecy depends on the accuracy of any predictions within it.
