1942 William Penn Lecture
  FriendshipFLibrary | Nov 25, 2015 |
This was the 1942 William Penn Lecture to Friends in Philadelphia. The style has an old-fashioned indirect formality that is sometimes graceful but often crosses over into high-flown. His observations are occasionally insightful, sometimes worthy but commonplace, and occasionally, I would say, fine-sounding but misleading. His message is that we should practice the love of God in all aspects of our lives. While Boulding's point is clearly worthy, this is a tedious read. ( )
  QuakerReviews | Mar 2, 2015 |
A direct and forceful encouragement to step forward and "practice what we preach." An encouragement to live a sincere and positive life, to be open and sharing regarding our spiritual understanding, and to endeavor in all our ways to love the Spirit. Slightly out-of-date in some of its cultural references and unanalytical in its references to "God." ( )
