Quakers have this notion that Christ speaks to, and through, everyone. This idea is reflected in most worship services. The amount of time given in a Sunday morning worship service for expression from the congregation varies greatly. In an “unprogrammed” meeting, it’s the full deal.

Fear of what others will think is one of the great inhibiters to public sharing. If a person cares a lot about what other people think, open worship can be a dangerous time. This morning I’m thinking blogging is a little like standing up at church during the time for open worship to share a thought, a concern, or even a wart.
