"Dan, Good points. I have had some further thoughts about repentance after reading your response. Repentance must be about the correct thing for it to be of any use. We may "repent of our sins" but unless we repent of our willfully walking…"

Causes or Kingdom

I have run into a number of issues and causes over the years put forth as being things "we should be involved in." I have first-hand experience of being "involved in" a number of such worthy causes. But it is not the worthy causes that form the foundation of righteousness.

Many will come to me on that day saying, "Lord, Lord, did we not..." [and there follows a list of worthy issues and causes]. I will say to them, "Depart from me you workers of iniquity, I never knew…

All Things Come By or Through Nature? This Month's Fox Reading and Discussion Call

Saturday, during our reading and discussion of Fox's Journal (See Works of Fox, Vol. 1, pp. 83-86)  an opening began growing in my mind concerning Fox's temptation.

"All things come by nature," said the tempter. And, as is usually the case, the lie is coated with enough "fact" to make it easy to swallow the poison. 

First of all we need to establish a working definition of what nature is. My definition, that which was opened to me, is nature is the vehicle by which God works.…

A group of us were considering Fox's epistle 24, which contains the following passage:

And so, our unity and fellowship with vain man are lost, and all his evil ways are now turned into enmity; and all his profession is now found to be deceit, and in all his fairest pretences lodgeth cruelty; and the bottom and ground of all his knowledge of God and Christ is found sandy, and cannot endure the tempest. For being brought off from that foundation, and having suffered the loss…

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!

Dear Ellis,


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

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.

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.
