New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 26 by K. Boulding

New Testament Inspired: Beautiful Quaker Words: James Nayler’s Deathbed TestimonyThere is a spirit which I feel that delights to do no evil, nor to revenge any wrong, but delights to endure all things, in hope to enjoy its own in the end. Its hope is to outlive all wrath and contention, and to weary out all exaltation and cruelty, or whatever is of a nature contrary to itself. It sees to the end of all temptations. As it bears no evil in itself, so it conceives none in thought to any other. If…See More

Daily Old Testament: Isaiah 66 and New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 15 by K. Boulding

Isaiah 66 – “With heaven my throne and earth my footstool, what house could you build me, what place could you make for my rest? All of this was made by my hand” (66:2). Still God’s eyes are “drawn to the man of humbled and contrite spirit” (66:2). People sacrifice all kinds of things to their idols rather than respond to God’s love. Jerusalem should rejoice, for now “towards her I send flowing peace, like a river” (66:12). She shall be comforted. There is a constant tension in these lines…See More

Daily Old Testament: Isaiah 65 and New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 14 by K. Boulding

Isaiah 65 – The last chapters are an apocalyptic vision – post-exilic or even later in time. The Lord has been ready to help those who went astray, but no one ever asked for help. “I was ready to be found, but no one was looking for me” (65:1). All day long the people threw dirt into God’s “face” – burning incense of pagan altars, breaking the laws God gave to their ancestors. They will suffer punishment at God’s hands “both for their own sins and for those of their ancestors” (65:7). “But I…See More

 Isaiah 64 - “Oh, that you would tear the heavens open and come down—at your Presence the mountains would melt” (64:1). “No ear has heard, no eye has seen any god but you act like this for those who trust him. You guide those who act with integrity and keep your ways in mind” (64:4-5). “And yet, Yahweh, you are our Father; we the clay, you the potter, we are all the work of your hand” (64:7-8). All we ever had from you is destroyed – Zion, Jerusalem, the Temple. “Will you continue to be silent…See More

Daily Old Testament: Isaiah 63 and New Testament Inspired Words of James Nayler - Nayler Sonnet 12 by K. Boulding

Isaiah 63 – A poem written in the form of a dialogue between the prophet and Yahweh, depicted here as one who treads grapes with his garments stained red. The prophet asks why his garments are red. Yahweh responds he has “trodden the winepress alone” (63:3) with not one man with Him. In His anger he has trampled them, an anger that supported Him in His loneliness. The prophet sings of Yahweh’s goodness in saving His people. “It was neither messenger nor angel but his Presence that saved them.…See More

Profile Information

About Me
I am a semi-retired teacher and also a writer. I consider myself both a Catholic and a Quaker and have started a blog called Catholic-Quaker, on which I share my meditations on Scripture and other religious writings. I have written a book called Leadings: A Catholic's Journey Through Quakerism, in which I tell the story of my religious journey. I have recently been re-energized in my desire to bridge the divide that exists between Catholics and Quakers by the interest of a Friend from Iowa who says he shares my vision. I am hoping the dialogue that might come from engaging online will be helpful to me and to others.
