Recording of today's study of the Journal of George Fox

We were a small group this morning. The text, however, that we read and discussed I found to be quite powerful. Fox was just coming out from under a deep, spiritual and physical exercise, which many thought would be the cause of his death. As he was being released from burden of that exercise, he had openings into the heavenly Jerusalem and how those who dwell therein know Christ who is able and "of ability" to bring you up into the state of Adam and Eve before the fall and into a higher state,…See More

An Epistle During A Time Of Persecution

We met on the 13th via Zoom to read and discuss Fox's Journal. I read from Vol. II, pp 100-104. It was a precious time, but I forgot to start the recording. However, I do want to copy out the letter Fox wrote to encourage Friends to stand faithful. We spent a good share of our time considering what Fox had to say.My Dear Friends--The seed is above all. In it walk; in which ye all have life. Be not amazed at the weather; for always the just suffered by the unjust, but the just had the dominion.…See More

What did George Fox mean by "And live in the spirit..."?

Epistle LXXIVOur discussion on 12/17/23 dwelt for some time on the sentence, "And live in the spirit, in which ye will have unity and peace, and the spiritual weapons, to cut down the spiritual enemies of your peace." There are many Christian groups who claim to make the Holy Spirit central. If you listen to them or read their writings you seldom hear Jesus Christ mentioned as a present influence. It is as though they say, "Jesus did His job some 2,000 years ago. We will see Him again at the…See More

There are times when our meetings go above and beyond the usual. November 19 was such a meeting. We were reading a fairly short Epistle, (LXXIV or 74), but we only got half way through it in our discussion. We will consider the 2nd part in our December meeting. I will not offer a summary but encourage all to follow the link to the recording below.You can listen to/download the reading and our discussion by going to …See More

Our meeting Saturday, 11-11-2023

On Saturday we met to discuss Fox's Journal. We read again the passage beginning "Sound, sound abroad..." and went on from there. Fox finished up his tour in Ireland visiting meetings and discussing the gospel with other people. One discussion concerned election and reprobation. Fox laid out in clear terms how the election is in Christ who was before the world began while the reprobation is in the evil spirit which has been since the world began. We read about a fake George Fox, about Fox's…See More

Sound, sound abroad

SOUND, sound abroad, you faithful servants of the Lord, witnesses in his name, faithful servants, prophets of the Highest, and angels of the Lord ! Sound ye all abroad in the world, to the awakening and raising of the dead, that they may be awakened and raised up out of the grave to hear the voice that, is living. For the dead have long heard the dead, and the blind have long wandered among the blind, and the deaf amongst the deaf. Therefore sound, sound, ye servants, prophets, and angels of…See More

"The only place I could find where Fox used the term "conscous of" was in a letter to a justice written while he was in prison. You can see this on page 274 of Vol. 1"

Jim R Brown commented on Ellis Hein's blog post Experience the life and power of God within yourselves
"For me, 'know' also connotes 'be conscious of' - a word that does not appear in the Bible, of course, and probably not in Fox (?). The sense of being conscious of is also suggested by the word 'comprehend' - so 'be…"

Experience the life and power of God within yourselves

Epistle LXVIII. Friends,—Know the life and power of God in yourselves, and one in another, and to that power be obedient, to thresh down all deceit within and without you in wisdom, and in that dwell which comprehends the world; and know the rest, which is for the people of God, which he that believeth hath entered into. So know the life that stands in God; and all know the power of God, for that power shall never be shaken nor change, but will shake down all that must be shaken and will…See More

We have been in the Minneapolis area for about a year. My major connection with NFF is that for 3 years we attended Manasquan MM with Lewis Benson. My father was a pastor in Indiana YM (FUM) and a missionary in Jamaica and Kenya. He was a student of Friends history and tried to convey the living Christ 24/7. We moved to NJ after my PhD in Science Ed and became "convinced" "unprogrammed" Friends especially with Lewis and other members there. I have been a member or "active attender" in FGC, FUM, Independent(Beanite), EFCI, and Conservative Meetings.

We are now "retired" near our daughter and her family.

Hello Ellis,

I haven't yet met or known about Tom Smith, but am looking forward to perhaps meeting with him.

Thanks for the information!

Peter

Dear Ellis,

 

Thank you for your welcome. Just read your piece on the Lord's Prayer. Appreciated it!

 

Blessings,

 

Stuart.

Hello Ellis,

b.t.w I emailed Tom Smith, but haven't received a reply yet. I'll track him down somehow, as he sounds like an interesting contact.

Regards,

Peter

I'll put it to the other members of the site committee to see what they think?

Paul and Mike, any comments to this suggestion?

Hi Ellis. As I am a bit isolated here in Portugal, and have no meeting to attend, I am always looking for other ways to surround myself with Quakers. Aside from the Bible and my Quaker Reader, the internet  seems to be the best way to do that. I am sure NFF will be a help to me, and I hope to contribute to the mission of NFF as well. Thanks for your interest, and I look forward to communicating with you in the future.

Greetings from Scotland Ellis.  I have been a Quaker for just over 20 years and am saddened that some British Quakers do not seem to be interested in the words of George Fox and the early Quakers, they see them as being secondary to their Quakerism.  How often do we hear the words of early Friends quoted in ministry?  Fox said that Christ had come to teach his people himself, but we rarely hear his teachings or name in ministry either.

I've been to one NFF meeting a few years back - in Edinburgh.   I work in Employabilty - supporting those with disabilities, mental health or substance misuse to get or maintain their employment.

Hi Ellis,

No, it's not my work. It's the abalone inlay on the peghead of my mountain dulcimer. The luthier is Janita Baker.

Sorry, Ellis. It's rosewood. The luthier told my walnut is too soft for an inlay.
