it's quite sad that the shakers are going... well... extinct.
i too find this fact very sad. in her writings - Mother Ann prophesied the rise and fall of the Shakers. but, she added, when there are as many Shakers left as there are fingers on a child's hand, there will be a second flowering of the faith. seems like that time is now - if only celibacy looked more appealing today?i hope her prophesy does come true...
