The basis and structure of The Religious Society of Friends

Posted on 10th mo. 4, 2010 at 5:56pm 5 Comments

My proposal is that the Religious Society of Friends exists to enable its members to be more faithful to God. It exists because God is the Creator and We are Creatures, part of a broader Creation for which we are (in the image of God) stewards. Each of us has the overwhelming task of discerning our place in the creation and our responsibility as stewards.



It's understandable that the most common response to this reality is denial but Friends proclaim the good news that God loves us… Continue

From Commandment to Declaration

Posted on 9th mo. 14, 2010 at 10:43pm 0 Comments

On the occasion of my conviction as a Christian I was given a song: Abba, I love thee with all my heart/Abba, I love thee with all my soul. Abba, I love thee with all my strength/Abba, thy will be done. Give us today our daily bread/Abba, I love thee with all my soul. And do not put me to the test/Abba, thy will be done.

so that your Son may glorify you;

so that, just as you have given him power over all humanity,

I truly regret that I can't come to the Convergent Friends worship in Seattle. I have a previous commitment that I can't break. I did contact other Friends who may be interested.

Hi Roger: so glad to see you here. You might remember me as a participant at the FGC Gathering workshop on the Bible that you led circa 2001. Who's Richard Davies I wonder, look forward to learning more when that's ready.
