Number 8…

(This is part of my “Top 10 Reasons I’m a Quaker” list…)

8. I believe God can and does show up in every human experience.

Fancy seminarian-types would say, “All of life is sacramental.” I believe God is not silent. I believe God is not hidden. I believe in “symbol” in the best sense of that word, that every experience and activity and object is capable of conveying ultimate Meaning. (Note the capital “M”it is the person of God who makes all things truly real and relevant.) When I worship with Friends, I am challenged to actually expect God to speak right then and there-and to look for God every moment of every day.
