The Dynamics Of Membership In Quaker Meeting - Php 371

BY TOM GATES
"In Quaker faith and practice, the individual and the meeting are in a dynamic, mutually supportive, and reciprocal relation." In this essay Tom Gates examines many of the factors affecting the relationship between the Seeker and the Meeting, before and during membership. While a person may be drawn to Quakerism for a particular reason, over time the individual's needs, and the way in which the Meeting community is able to meet them, change. Tom Gates examines the many aspects of membership and the obligations it may impose on us, individually and as a faith community.

Bible Lessons From The 2005 Annual Gathering Of Friends

BY TOM GATES
By popular demand the Bible talks given at the 2005 Annual Gathering of Friends now appear in printed form, a booklet containing the text, footnotes and the readings handed to participants. Tom Gates explores the Bible through the eyes of early Friends and how their understanding can shed light on the Bible for contemporary Friends. "Tom Gates' presentations, delivered at the FGC Gathering 2005, are truly inspired illuminations of the thought and witness of George Fox. For those of us who were present, Tom `opened' George Fox to us in very much the same way that those who were contemporaries of George Fox said that he, George Fox, opened the scriptures to them." - Art Larrabee

Worship, The Gathered Meeting Revisited

Worship, The Gathered Meeting Revisited

BY TOM GATES
The first in the Arch Street Series of PYM Annual Sessions lectures, this 2006 talk by Tom Gates poses the questions as to why the experience of the gathered meeting is so rare and if Friends know it experientially or feel it is no longer relevant. Gates encourages Friends to develop the Covenant Community out of which the gathered meeting is generated and outlines the conditions necessary to achieve it.

You Must Live A Dying Life

You Must Live A Dying Life

Reflections On Human Mortality And The Spiritual Life

BY TOM GATES
"I want to explore with you the subject of death: how our mortality is the central issue in our spiritual lives, at one and the same time a stumbling block and an invitation to transformation; how our mortality isolates us, from one another and from God, but at the same time unites us, with all humanity and with the divine mystery that is both our source and our destiny; and how it is that caring for the dying among us can open us as perhaps nothing else to this mystery and transformation." - the author
