Bill,
What a thoughtful and what seemed like a very honest personal appraisal of what Quakerism means to you.
I am not Quaker, but I did attend a Quaker high school for four years and found the "low key" spirituality and strong sense of mission for peace in our world something I could very much relate to -- this was in the late 60s when the Vietnam War raged and MLK was assassinated . I also attended Meetings for Worship, and while I too fidgeted often, I appreciated the time for self reflection. I also appreciated the fact that no one tried to prostilatize their beliefs, only share their feelings and thoughts.
While I do not follow the faith in any formal way, I will say that my experience had a profound effect in shaping who I am today. Your reflections helped bring my feelings back to light. Thank you.
