I contributed a shortened version of my motorcycle ministry piece. Young friends from all over the world contributed, and the book has been into Spanish as well.
I’m a little disappointed that there wasn’t space to include any of the pictures of my trip in my piece. My impression is that they both mitigate the harshness of my message and give a better idea of where I went, not something I got into in the piece itself.
In my writing, which is several years old now, I express some concerns about the state of Quakerism. While I continue to hold many of those concerns, efforts like this work give me hope and I am very appreciative of the time and care the editors took to make this project happen.
