Carlisle Friends Meeting
The kind of clearness committees described here are used by Friends to help an individual whose feelings are muddled or conflicted about a particular situation.
The first time I read Steven Davison’s pamphlet [on the Gathered Meetging] my heart leapt and I said, “Yes!” The second time I read it, I wept. Why the difference?
Beautiful tribute from Marcelle Martin's blog about what it means to be a Quaker elder.
