Carlisle Friends Meeting
Beautiful tribute from Marcelle Martin's blog about what it means to be a Quaker elder.

See the link below. From Marcelle Martin who led a workshop at meeting a few years ago. See the link below.
Marcelle also has a new book out - Our Life is Love - about Quaker spirituality.
Lectures from major contemporary figures within Friends on the economy and social issues.
Friends might find the Swarthmore lecture by Pink Dandelion interesting. It tries to define what it means to be a Quaker. See the link below.
