George Fox and the Apostle Paul

In a discussion on Bill Carsley's last post, two people have raised questions about how to reconcile George Fox and the apostle Paul concerning the issue of partaking of the bread and wine, which most of Christendom has practiced while Fox and the early Quakers did not. Would it not open an avenue for the rest of Christendom to receive what Fox and the early Quakers had to say if these two positions could be reconciled? The following words have risen in my heart in response.There can be no…See More

Fox's Message to the Yearly Meeting 1658

Here is another example of how Fox viewed the so-called Sacraments, practiced by most of Chrstendom. This is also an example of how Fox understood the relationship between the people of God and Christ. The quote below is taken from The Works of George Fox, Vol. 1, pp. 364-366.

I was moved by the power and spirit of the Lord to open unto them the ' promise of God, that it was made to the seed, not to seeds, as many, but to one; which seed was Christ: and that all people,…

The Presence of Christ

I am often running into the notion that in order to achieve salvation, in order to come into the presence of Christ, we must somehow rid ourselves of all things physical. Yesterday, in worship, the following came to me.

We do not come into the presence of Christ by getting rid of the physical and its distractions. Rather the presence of Christ comes to us to make the flesh holy and to bring all creation into holy order.

Removal from Membership

In case anyone is looking for the posts and comments recently put on this site by Keith Saylor, I have removed them and have deleted Keith's membership. His postings were not in accordance with the purpose of our website. He has agreed with me that he did not fit with the NFF. So, we part ways. 

I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause anyone looking for Keith's posts or for comments made in response to his posts.

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

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.
