Thank you for the welcoming words. Perhaps this is the place to say a few words about myself.
I am a retired speech and language pathologist. I live in San Mateo, California. I was born and raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts and raised as a Roman Catholic. Some twenty five years ago I first learned of Quakerism through chance reading, and became especially interested in the principles and beliefs of early and traditional Friends. I also have an ongoing interest in early Christianity of the first three centuries since even before that time. I can read the Koine Greek of the New Testament.
I have had an association with Ohio Conservative Quakers for some twenty years. Two years ago I became an affiliate member of Middleton Friends Meeting in Columbiana, Ohio (Ohio Yearly Meeting (Conservative)). But living in San Mateo, California, I attend Palo Friends Meeting, a local liberal Friends meeting.
I look forward to learning more about authentic traditional Quaker teachings and beliefs and participating on this New Foundation Fellowship website.
Thank you for introducing yourself, Henry. I hope you feel encouraged to join in our discussions and to post essays of your own. Please also feel free to comment on any of the earlier posts, if you wish. You've had a long-time interest in early Friends--as have many of us--and I look forward to your contributions.
Some of us also have connections to Ohio YM (Conservative). Terry Wallace is a member there and has been active with NFF for decades, also Arthur Berk. I attended the yearly meeting in Barnesville a few times, and now and then have met with Keystone Fellowship here in Pennsylvania. Also, in 2001, I traveled in the ministry in France with Nancy Hawkins. Jack and Susan Smith have attended our gatherings often. So, there's been quite a bit of overlap.
Again, glad you found your way here!
