Introduction


Presented in reverse chronology, this history stretches from the present back to the Fellowship's 1970 founding, and beyond.
(See "Blog Archive" in the sidebar below.) It draws from many sources, including The Fellowship of Friends - Living Presence Discussion, the Internet Archive, the former Fellowship of Friends wiki project, cult education and awareness sites, news archives, and from the editor's own 13-year experience in the Fellowship.

The portrait that emerges stands in stark contrast to sanitized versions presented on the Fellowship's array of
alluring websites, and on derivative sites created by Burton's now-estranged
disciple, Asaf Braverman.

September 1982 Notes

September 5:
Salon (at The Goethe Academy) is inaugurated
September 11:
Cabernet Sauvignon harvest begins
Winemaker Karl Werner said the acid-sugar balance could not be better. Over thirteen tons are brought in.
 The vintage may turn out a lighter, more elegant wine than past vintages.
 September 12:
Cabernet harvest continues
September 15:
Small lots of white varietals are harvested for champagne. Chenin Blanc, Gewurztrmainer.
Karl expects the first releases of our wine will be in 1988.

September 17:
Rain. Reports of grape crops damaged in Napa and Sonoma (but Renaissance beat the rain.)
