Support for our True Selves
Jenny Spinks speaks about nurturing leadings and growing into her individual potential. She argues that if we can be our true selves, open to being led minute by minute by the Spirit, we will live in a way that cares for the earth. Often there is clutter that gets in the way and blocks connection. This lecture looks at ways Quakerism offers to consciously/actively support our true selves and nurture the space where leadings flow and at how the freedom to express emotion in committed spiritual F/friendships helps clear the clutter and nurture leadings. The author contends that the Religious Society of Friends' role is to uphold and support us in nurturing this process.
