Excerpt: "One reason I appreciate the Quaker tradition so deeply is the way that Friends simplify all else in order to heighten the spiritual reality of the Present Christ. From the testimony of the Quaker "patriarch" (about one, even Christ Jesus, who speaks to our conditions) to the "sacramental community" (which upholds the promise that where two or three are gathered in his name, Christ is present in their midst), Friends seek to experience in the present tense what it means to live under the Power of the Resurrected Lord."
