Another Brooklyn Quaker

Click this link to see still another Brooklyn Quaker, who - like me - is a non-member of Brooklyn Meeting.

Also - if I understand correctly - he or she is not only a Quaker but also a monk.

Not a member? Have the appropriate committees been notified? Are there lingering taints of "wingism" in your meeting that might make this Friend fell unwelcome? Do cultural norms drive this Friend away? Consider whether any of the following attitudes prevail among Brooklyn Friends:

"its icky to eat worms"

"we do not perch on one another's shoulders during meeting for worship"

"we'd be glad to bring birdseed to our potlucks -- can you bring the lasagna?"

"no pecking -- peace testimony, you know."

A cheep shot or two there I'm sure, but I couldn't resist.

Thanks for the link to!

I can't positively say that the Brooklyn Quakers of the avian variety have a consistent theology, but after watching these birds for more than a year, I can vouch for the fact that they're industrious, hard-working, and mainly pacifistic (I've seen quite a few arguments among them, but aside from a few ruffled feathers, nobody gets hurt).

If these birds don't have a consistent theology they should fit in very well with the Religious Society of Friends.

Apparently they became Quakers because they wanted to try this "Seed that Reigns Over Death".
