I used to think this paradox existed because the events our meeting organized didn’t appeal to very many people. But now I think that the real problem is that most people don’t want to make the effort to be part of this community, in all its complicated, cozy, messy, tedious, transformative glory. Which sometimes means showing up for stuff that you’re only tangentially interested in, just because your Friends are going to be there.
Or maybe I’m the crazy one, but I always have fun at Quaker stuff.
