Way Closing

There is a Quaker tradition/belief that closed doors in one's life can often be more telling/guiding than open doors - that is of course if one will pay attention. That is definitely where I am at right now. There are many recently closed doors in my life and I find myself waiting for a new door to open. I'm trying to pay attention to what the closed doors have to say about my life and what I might have to learn from the "way closing". It's easier to look for and pursue doors that might be opening, but I have to admit I am intrigued by what the closed doors may have to say.

Favorite Quotes

One of my favorite quotes is from Richard Baxter - a reformed pastor from the 17th century. He says...

"In necessary things, unity;
In doubtful things, liberty;
In ALL things, charity."

I think this is such a wonderful perspective and one which the modern day church needs to remember.
