Number 4…

(This is part of my “Top 10 Reasons I’m a Quaker” list… the whole thing is already up on Barclay Press’s site. So, if you’re the type who likes anticipation, stay tuned here. If you like getting to the point, feel free to head over to Barclay Press.)

4. I don’t want to be called “reverend.”

As a pastor, I don’t want to be set apart from the people with whom I’m living life as a follower of Jesus. God alone is worthy of being revered. Even Friends don’t always get this right, but I’m proud to be a part of a denomination that truly holds to the priesthood of ALL believers, that refuses to look at a person’s office or function in the church, but rather at the person’s openness to the Spirit of God.

  1. Kind of like Robin, I couldn’t wait. Couldn’t wait to see if you let Barclay Press use a picture of your face instead of the back of your head. Congratulations!
