On Redemption in John 11

He who expects to arrive at . . . the union of the soul with God, by means of consolation and   comfort, will find himself mistaken. For, having sinned, we must expect to suffer, and be in some measure purified, before we can be in any degree fitted for a union with God, or permitted to taste the joy of his presence. Be ye patient, therefore, under all the sufferings which your Father is pleased to send you. If your love to him be pure, you will not seek him less in suffering than in…

On Presumption and Belief in John 11

Of the 21 chapters in John’s Gospel, chapter 11 has been for decades the least interesting to me. It was its scattered quality that put me off: too many characters, most of them contributing only snippets; vignettes that seemed to go nowhere; dialogue that just didn’t connect or flow; inexplicable actions and reactions. Where was the throughline? I asked myself: the coherent theme that took shape with each succeeding verse.

As a narrative, this chapter seemed more like a script out of…

David Johnson's 6/23/2019 talk at West Richmond Friends Church, and why I called it "intense"

MIGHT WE BECOME AS OBEDIENT AS JESUS?

On First Day, 6/24/2019, I was privileged to be among the seventeen Friends who heard Australian Friend David Johnson (_A Quaker Prayer Life_, Inner Light Books, 2013; _Jesus, Christ and Servant of God_, Inner Light Books, 2017) lead an intense after-meeting discussion, at West Richmond (IN) Friends Meeting, on what the Gospel of John has to say about the relation of Jesus Christ to God, His _Abba_.

Friend David had us go around the room,…

Welcome to the New Foundation Web Site

When George Fox spoke of passing through the two-edged flaming sword upon entering the paradise of God, he drew from biblical imagery, which distinguished one way of being from another. Earthly wisdom and the transgressing life could not enter but was cut down and burnt up by that figurative sword.

When the testimony is made, it is the same in every age: Women and men come into a new way of being, renewed up into the Image of God in righteousness, holiness and freedom. Established on our Foundation, Christ Jesus, we know the steadfast state of Grace and Truth. As did those who came before and knew by experience, let us go out to declare the Truth for the love of it.
