From the WFCF Invitation:
“Therefore let not the mind go from God; for if it do it will be stained, venomed, and corrupted. If the mind go forth [away] from the Lord, it is hard to bring it in again: therefore take heed of the enemy, and keep in the faith of Christ. Therefore mind that which is eternal and invisible and him who is the creator and mover of all things: for the things that are made are not made of things that appear; for the visible covereth the invisible sight in you. But as the Lord who is invisible, doth open you by his invisible power and spirit and brings down the carnal mind in you; so the invisible and immortal things are brought to light in you. Therefore you that know the light, walk in the light! For there are children of darkness that will talk of the light and of the truth, yet not walk in it; …the children of light love the light and walk in the light. … the children of darkness walk in darkness and hate the light. In them the earthly lusts and carnal mind choke the seed of faith, which bringeth oppression on the seed, and death over themselves. Therefore, mind the pure spirit of the everlasting God, which judgeth the evil. To thee O God, be all glory and honor, who art Lord of all visibles and invisibles.”
The Works of George Fox, Journal I, Volume 1, pg 14
Like the manna given to the Israelites in the desert our connection to God must be renewed daily. I suspect you know and practice this renewal. Yet we all desire an even closer walk with Jesus. We long for a larger portion of that peace and wisdom that comes from obedience to Christ’s nudging. I pray that each forward step we take is in His light, looking neither to the right nor to the left.
Ohio Yearly Meeting has planned a general gathering of Conservative Friends and those of like mind to be held at the Stillwater Meeting House in Barnesville, Ohio, Sixth Month 25 – 27 2010.
An ever-widening circle of like-minded Friends has been reaching out to us and to one another. Many experience only the virtual internet fellowship without the experience of intimate group dynamic, under the Power of Christ Jesus. Conservative Friend’s gatherings provide opportunities for these Friends to worship and fellowship with a larger body of like-minded believers.
There are also small Meetings For Worship that God has raised up in various places. These Meetings can benefit from as well as give depth to the worship and fellowship of a group gathering.
We also welcome those conservative Friends who have committed a lifetime to the nurture and care of meetings that wait in worship under the Name of Jesus. These Friends contribute to the stability of our gatherings. They also gather energy and encouragement from new believers.
On behalf of the Wider Fellowship of Conservative Friends,
Sixth Month 25th through 27th, 2010 Gathering of Conservative Friends
