Our thanks to Steve Livingston with the Asheville Friends Meeting for appearing on Positively Living  and for sharing the history, beliefs, practice and more on Quakers!

We hope you enjoyed meeting Quakers in this first episode our series “Religions, Faiths and Spiritual Groups”

After Show notes:

“It is more about our practice than our beliefs that brings Quakers together” Steve Livingston, Asheville Friends Meeting

Steve asked to include more about the Monthly Quaker’s Business Meeting – The upside down hierarchy of the Quaker structure continues into the planning of each Meeting’s activity, plans and outreach. So this means that all friends in each Meeting will have a active and responsible voice.

Some historical people in the Quaker aka Religious Circle of Friends:
George Fox
William Penn
Mary Dyar

Some of the “Quaker Alaphabet Soup that Steve spoke of :

Sunday May 12th, 2013, Our special guest on Positively Living’s Mother’s Day Episode is Luella Whitmire

Sunday May 12th, 2013, Our special guest on Positively Living’s Mother’s Day Episode is Luella Whitmire

Our Mother’s Day Special Guest was selected for several reasons:

While interviewing a guest, I often ask “Who was a driving force behind your accomplishments”?

One of our previous guest glowed when speaking of the person who made the difference- her Mother! At the end of the interview I asked the guest, if I could meet her Mother. I had to meet the Mother, little did I know the impact of this little woman and how it has been felt by most of Asheville!

May I introduce to you our special guest, Ms. Luella Whitmire

Luella Whitmire is a native of Asheville, the Mother of 3 daughters and 1 son, a community activist and the Pastor at Living Water Ministries located in Asheville NC.

I interviewed Pastor Whitmire over a Month ago but held back the episode because I had to have her as the Mother’s Day focus. She was our choice because of her relationship with her children, her relationship and service for God and His children, and  the difference she has made in our community.

I hope you will join us Sunday May 12th Noon to 1pm to be inspired by Pastor Luella Whitmire. This Mother, Woman, Child of God had to be our Positively Living Mother of the Year on Mother’s Day 2013.
