im serious


conservative quakers will wait for a clear leading before making a decision on serious issues. if clearness is not obtained, the solution is to postpone a decision until unity is achieved.

in situations where circumstances force one outcome rather than another when undirected, we decide by not deciding.

^^^this is the strategy of the traditional slow quaker: to stop until told to go.

i am a fast quaker. i go until i am told to stop.

both are needed for genuine unity, but i have pissed a lot of people off at times

I taught at a Waldorf school (didn't drink the kool-aid) for two years. This need for unity seemed to be something they strived for, as well. Don't know if it was universal to all the schools, though.

unity does not mran unanimous

or consensus

the sense of the meeting is a weird form of group think, in which everybody agrees, or agrees not to stand against, leaving a way forward for the group.

quaker stuff.

doesnt always work very well either
