About

River View Friend is a blog devoted to matters religious and spiritual by Doug Bennett, a Quaker.

I belong to Durham Friends Meeting in Durham, Maine. I live in Topsham, Maine, on the banks of the Androscoggin River.

I first encountered Quakers at Haverford College. Some years later I became a member of Germantown Friends Meeting in Philadelphia. Later, as my work took me elsewhere, I was a member of Wilmington Friends Meeting in Delaware, Multnomah Monthly Meeting in Oregon, and Fifteenth Street Meeting in New York City. From 1997 until my retirement in 2011, I was President of Earlham College in Richmond, Indiana where I was a member of First Friends Meeting.

I am grateful for the enrichment of my spiritual life in all of these communities.
