About pilgrimwb:

I'm a Quaker from childhood, who swam downstream (theologically and historically) about a hundred years, and afterward became a United Methodist. Raised an evangelical, I've been trying ever since to balance my "born again" love for God with an increasing love for others, by involvement in my church and through some personal writings.
