…there’s hope….

July 23rd, 2014 · No Comments · Musings, Shaker

This evening opened the 40th Shaker Seminar hosted by Hancock Shaker Village.  it is being held in Portland , Maine with forays planned to the Sabbathday Lake and Alfred communities.  after a lovely dinner, Brother Arnold of the Sabbathday Lake community spoke to us of “And so keep my way ever Holy: An overview of Shakerism in the Eastward.”

He provided a thorough, and very entertaining brief history of the Maine Shakers. Most endearing, and meaningful to me was the way he put the humanness into the people who lived this lifestyle then, and now.

“The human spirit is the human spirit is the human spirit.”

“There’s still breath in the body, and when there is still breath, there is hope.”
