Quaker Publishing: An Historical Overview | Thomas Hamm

From My Heart to Yours: Sharing a Faith That Heals | Marcelle Martin
In this online talk, Marcelle Martin speaks about the call to write about faith in a way that reaches to the hearts of others. In her twenties, while in an M.F.A. program in Creative Writing, she learned to guard her heart from criticism. But her constricted inner life called out for healing and led her on a search for deeper truth. With the help of writing practices, she woke up to spiritual dimensions previously unsuspected, and discovered the path toward wholeness and healing. In this talk she describes the call to help evoke a healing faith in others, through the stories of early Friends and other faithful people as well as by offering accounts of her own explorations and spiritual journey.
