Dynamics of Evil

And why is the devil, and they that be of him, called a deceiver, because he is out of the truth, and would draw others from and out of the truth, and so destroy them both body and soul, but Christ destroyeth him (George Fox, Headley Manuscript, Friends House London, p. 311, catalogue item number 8, 82F).In Steven Spielberg’s 1993 film Schindler’s List, there was a scene that has remained with me as an accurate portrayal of the dynamics of evil. This particular scene offered a glimpse into the…See More

A Poem for Pentecost

The dove descending breaks the airWith flame of incandescent terrorOf which the tongues declareThe one discharge from sin and error.The only hope, or else despairLies in the choice of pyre or pyre-To be redeemed from fire by fire.Who then devised the torment? Love.Love is the unfamiliar NameBehind the hands that woveThe intolerable shirt of flameWhich human power cannot remove.We only live, only suspireConsumed by either fire or fire.                      T. S. Eliot, from "Four Quartets"…See More

Introduction to "The Christian Universalism of George Fox"

When I began to concentrate my studies on all the writings of George Fox more than forty years ago, it was during the period of Quaker history that might be called the “high tide” of the mystical interpretation of Quakerism. And when I had first encountered Fox’s Journal just fifty years ago, I was not a professing Christian. If I had any bias when I read the Journal for the first time, it was in the direction of hoping to find in Fox the “perennial philosophy” of the mystics. But as I…See More

Patricia Dallmann commented on Brenda Redshaw's blog post Quaker course.
"Ben Pink Dandelion is one of the few voices among Liberal Quakers who is both discerning and well-regarded. His online course, which I took a couple of years ago, was geared to those who were unfamiliar with original Quaker faith and history, but…"

Brenda Redshaw commented on Patricia Dallmann's blog post The New Way
"Man makes it very complicated, but it is really very simple. God will come and dwell in us, in the New Covenant Temple, and make us sons of God, only if we allow Him to cleanse it first. We cannot have 'bits of Him'. It is all or nothing -…"

Patricia Dallmann commented on Patricia Dallmann's blog post The New Way
"The early Quakers became sons of God in that they received the spirit of Christ (Jn.1:12), which cast out all other spirits, as Christ's spirit is more powerful than any other spirit. I think of the spirit of Cain who became murderous toward…"

Ellis Hein commented on Patricia Dallmann's blog post The New Way
"I am always struck by the relevance of the latter part of Isaiah 54 and the early portion of 55. Isaiah 54 speaks of "all your sons will be taught by the Lord" and this we have seen in the early Quakers. Chapter 55 then gets to our day:"

"Thanks, Allistair. As time passes, more and more Quakers are noticing and admitting that their meetings lack depth and life. Some have written about needing a new idea to restore Quakerism, something more pertinent to present-day needs. The world…"

The New Way

The following is based upon vocal ministry given in a Philadelphia meeting on 11/5/17.There is a story about Jesus that takes place after he’d been ministering for a while. He was at home, visiting with his brothers shortly before a festival was to occur in Jerusalem. His brothers were planning to go to the festival, but Jesus was not planning to go with them. The brothers spoke to Jesus, perhaps to chastise him for not going, or perhaps to mock him. They said to Jesus, if you have a message…See More

A Poem for Pentecost

The dove descending breaks the air

With flame of incandescent terror

Of which the tongues declare

The one discharge from sin and error.

The only hope, or else despair

Lies in the choice of pyre or pyre-

To be redeemed from fire by fire.

Who then devised the torment? Love.

Love is the unfamiliar Name

Behind the hands that wove

The intolerable shirt of flame

Which human power cannot remove.

We only live, only suspire

Consumed by either…

It sounds like it might be well to wait for the 2015 publication to come out before purchasing.  I'll see what I can find out about it.  Thanks, Pat...

Thank you for the welcoming words. Perhaps this is the place to say a few words about myself.

I am a retired speech and language pathologist. I live in San Mateo, California. I was born and raised in Cambridge, Massachusetts and raised as a Roman Catholic. Some twenty five years ago I first learned of Quakerism through chance reading, and became especially interested in the principles and beliefs of early and traditional Friends. I also have an ongoing interest in early Christianity of the first three centuries since even before that time. I can read the Koine Greek of the New Testament. 

I have had an association with Ohio Conservative Quakers for some twenty  years. Two years ago I became an affiliate member of Middleton Friends Meeting in Columbiana, Ohio (Ohio Yearly Meeting (Conservative)). But living in San Mateo, California, I attend Palo Friends Meeting, a local liberal Friends meeting.

 I look forward to learning more about authentic traditional Quaker teachings and beliefs and participating on this New Foundation Fellowship website.

Thank you for introducing yourself, Henry. I hope you feel encouraged to join in our discussions and to post essays of your own. Please also feel free to comment on any of the earlier posts, if you wish. You've had a long-time interest in early Friends--as have many of us--and I look forward to your contributions. 

Some of us also have connections to Ohio YM (Conservative). Terry Wallace is a member there and has been active with NFF for decades, also Arthur Berk. I attended the yearly meeting in Barnesville a few times, and now and then have met with Keystone Fellowship here in Pennsylvania. Also, in 2001, I traveled in the ministry in France with Nancy Hawkins. Jack and Susan Smith have attended our gatherings often. So, there's been quite a bit of overlap.

Again, glad you found your way here!
