Psalm 108 – “My heart is confident in you, O God; no wonder I can sing your praises with all my heart! Wake up, lyre and harp! I will wake the dawn with my song” (108:1-2).

 

“I will sing your praises among the nations for your unfailing love is higher than the heavens” (108:3-4).

 

“I will divide up Shechem with joy. I will measure out the valley of Succoth. Gilead is mine, and Manasseh, too. Ephraim, my helmet, will produce my warriors, and Judah, my…

Dwight L. Wilson - Reflections on being a member of the ESR Board of Advisors

When in 2010 I was asked to join the Board of Advisors I accepted without hesitation.  Any opportunity to pursue a deeper spirituality is welcomed but when it also offers a way to bring healing within our various denominations—yes Quakers have denominations—it should be seized.  My colleagues on the Board of Advisors are more than healers they are also cheerleaders in…

Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 106-107 and Matthew 21

 

Psalm 106 – “Praise the Lord! Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his faithful love endures forever” (106:1).

 

“Both we and our fathers have sinned; we have committed iniquity; we have done wickedness. Our fathers, when they were in Egypt, did not consider your wondrous works; they did not remember the abundance of your steadfast love, but rebelled by the sea, at the Red Sea. Yet he saved them for his name’s sake, that he might make known his mighty…

Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 104-105 and Matthew 20

Psalm 104 – This Psalm apparently has common elements with Ikhnaton’s Ode to the Sun:

“Bless the Lord, O my soul! O Lord mu God, you are very great. You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering yourself with splendor and majesty, covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent” (104:1-2).

 

The clouds are His chariot – “he rides on the wings of the wind”…

On War

Dear Friends: I’ve got some good news and some bad news for you about war. The bad news is numbingly familiar.  The good news, however, is heartening.

Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 102-103 and Matthew 19

Well, the new year is here and it occurred to me yesterday that I was going to have to start to do something NEW in 2013. The cycle for readings is only one year for the New Testament readings, so I am actually posting at least in part some of the posts I did in January of 2012. I thought I might try to put together some thematic commentary on the New Testament readings from the Early Church Fathers or more early Friends' writings. I have done that to some…
