There is a troublesome dilemma facing believers in a variety of minority religions and sects: how to resolve the demands of their faith and yet participate in the larger community. This book explores that dilemma by a micro-study of one congregation (monthly meeting) and the seventeen surname families that were part of that meeting for one hundred years. By looking at a single meeting and a group of discrete families, there is a sense of both forward movement and reluctance to change.
