I am a Quaker.
I am what they call a birth rite. It means I was born into a family with two very strong willed Grandmothers. Their influence was long lasting and strict. They sent me bible prayers and took me to Meeting.
I was told about my ansestor Mayer Dyer. She was killed bythe Puritans for her Quaker belief that we are all children of god. Also that our dialog with god is a personnal one.
Her statue in Boston was held as a sense of pride. An example of a women who did not need affirmatoins.
Do I have my Grandmothers sense about right and wrong?
Do I have Mary's unshakable faith?
I am a christian.
I am a child of god.
