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.

November 1982 Notes

"Renaissance Vine" newsletter [summarized]
Many persons are being moved into construction at the winery, and there have been cutbacks in other areas

Other Notes

November 5:
New Herman Miller dining tables arrive for the Lincoln Lodge.
November 8:
Riesling harvest in the rain. Much of the crop moldy and had to be left on the ground.
November 12:
Fellowship member Neal O’Brien dies in an automobile crash on Marysville Road in Brown’s Valley. [An on-coming pick-up truck carrying three teens apparently left the pavement and drove into the right shoulder. The driver over-corrected, swerving into Neal’s path, and colliding head-on with Neal’s Mercedes.] In the 12 years since its founding, there have been few member deaths. The organization is still youthful, with an average age probably still in the early-30s.
November 19:
Robert Burton returns from travels in Europe
