I am a minister, photographer, retreat leader, author and Quaker -- albeit one who's not always good at being a good Quaker. I am the author of "Awaken Your Senses," "Holy Silence: The Gift of Quaker Spirituality," "Mind the Light: Learning to See with Spiritual Eyes" and "Sacred Compass: The Path of Spiritual Discernment" (foreword by Richard Foster).
This blog is a compendium of writing, photography, seriousness and silliness -- depending on my mood.

Silence in a Noisy Season: Silence -- The Language of God
“The less form in religion the better, since God is a Spirit; . . . the more silent, the more suitable to the language of a Spirit.”
William Penn, quoted in Christian Faith and Practice in the Experience of the Society of Friends, #227.
