  • Red­dit dis­cus­sion on Quak­ers, reli­gion, and anger 11/21/2014
    Red­dit dis­cus­sion on Quak­ers, reli­gion, and anger: There’s an inter­est­ing thread on Red­dit by a seeker inter­ested in Friends but wor­ried about their anger: I was so com­forted and moved by Quaker beliefs and prac­tices. I pre­fer the idea of sit­ting in silence and ‘lis­ten­ing’ for faith and spir­i­tu­al­ity, or at least that’s how I inter­preted Quaker worship…Howeve […]
  • The faith­ful­ness of Friends 11/21/2014

Pow­er­ful lis­ten­ing is one of the rarest exec­u­tive prac­tices today.”
  • Does the world need more Quaker sen­si­bil­i­ties? 11/11/2014
    Does the world need more Quaker sen­si­bil­i­ties?: Ray­mond J Brim­ble hopes for more Quaker-inspired val­ues in our pol­i­tics: Why is “com­pro­mise” such a bad con­cept these days? Do we lack that much con­fi­dence in our own opin­ions and have such lit­tle respect for those of our friends and neigh­bors? Isn’t democ­racy defined by com­pro­mise and dic­ta­tor­ship the method o […]

Here are some high­lights of the archive:

Quaker:

I am a mem­ber of the Reli­gious Soci­ety of Friends, known col­lo­qui­ally as Quak­ers. Many of my blog posts deal with issues of our soci­ety and its inter­ac­tions with the larger world.

Non­vi­o­lence:

From 1995–2008 I was the pub­lisher of Non​vi​o​lence​.org, a ground-breaking por­tal and blog about peace. Many of these arti­cles are archived from that period.
