River View Friend is a blog devoted to matters religious and spiritual by Doug Bennett, a Quaker.
I belong to First Friends Meeting in Richmond, Indiana. I live in Topsham, Maine, on the banks of the Androscoggin River, and worship at Brunswick Friends Meeting and also at First Parish Church (UCC) in Brunswick Maine.
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.
I am grateful for the enrichment of my spiritual life in all of these communities.
