What does it really mean to absorb the learning that comes from our “roots” in Quakerism? Are there ways of approaching our roots that have a greater likelihood of bearing spiritual fruits? Brian Drayton explores the idea of “rootedness” at multiple levels–as a metaphor, as a discipline, as a goal–in order to reveal the ways in which we may derive the most nourishment from the roots that we seek to rediscover, and more importantly, so that God’s Spirit may flourish within us and through us.
