\John Woolman's Journal; Among the Indians

A Word from John WoolmanMoved by Love 12th day, 6th month, and first of the week. It being a rainy day we continued in our tent, and here I was led to think on the nature of the exercise which hath attended me. Love was the first motion, and then a concern arose to spend some time with the Indians, that I might feel and understand their life and the spirit they live in, if haply I might receive some instruction from them, or they be in any degree helped forward by my following the leadings of…See More

John Woolman Again, taken from FUMe Newsletter

A Word from John WoolmanA Prophetic Ministry In the 1st month, 1759, having found my mind drawn to visit some of the more active members in our Society at Philadelphia, who had slaves, I met my friend John Churchman there by an agreement, and we continued about a week in the city. We visited some sick people, and some widows and their families, and the other part of our time was mostly employed in visiting such as had slaves. It was a time of deep exercise, looking often to the Lord for His…See More

Hi William,

thanks for the reminder of Wikipedia. They don't tell us much, but I see that Whittier wrote a book "In war time" (1864) which should be informative.  As for the place between Quakers and Mennonites, we have probably a lot in common.

Hi William, 

Thanks for the article on Wilburite Meetings for Worship, which read in snatches over time, and now need to reread before commenting.  You give plenty of food for thought and more to ponder.

Hello William!

Yes you are right, this is a place full of history. For quakers and mennonites. I move there in January. Currently I'm still living in Augsburg. Here in Augsburg I have close contacts with Mennonites. We have Mennonite and Quaker style meetings.

Currently there are no Quaker meetings (monthly meeting) in Krefeld. I hope this will change ;-)

But you know, the real Quakers in Germany always emigrate. That is the problem! :-)

William, Thanks for the idea. I'd be happy to read what you have been writing.

Hi William,  I became interested in George Fox as a younger Christian, and William Penn also.  I was impressed by them and the early Quakers commitment and laying down of their lives in England to go all out to spread the message of Jesus. 

And I lived in a town called Horsham where George Fox was imprisoned just a hundred yards from where I was living.   But my interest in them and also the early Puritans  got awakened when the Lord led me out to commit myself to pray and repent each night in the hills where I lived.  I was led by the Holy Spirit each night.  

I would love the Quaker and Puritan movements to return to the place where they were at all of those years ago.

Is that a photo of you in the car ?

Hi there, William..You got my name wrong. It is, 'Carolyn'.

And I would be happy to help you start a group for 'Anabaptis

Friends". That about describes me in a nutshell!

Blessings,

Carolyn

Thank You, William!

I joined QQ several years ago. The thing is, I took time away. Thought I was going to be Anabaptist and started attending the Church of God in Christ, Mennonites in Livingston, CA. The only problem is, I don't drive and my husband doesn't want to go 66 miles one way to church even once a month..I would be there all the time, if I could. But cannot be and the Doctrine classes are hard to fit in when people can only come here every so often..nothing regular and so I set it aside. It hurts me very much to do so,too. I have come back to be a Quaker as that is what I was before attempting to be a Mennonite. I live "out of the world" now even more so than before. It is kind of a lonely existence on my narrow way. 

  I am 64, married to Mark for 25 yrs. We have one daughter 18 who is starting college. And four dogs. One is my Diabetic Alert Dog, Regis. The other 3 are Jack Russell Terriers.

Yes I have met some of the OGB people from Modesto. They are lovely folks.

I never met your famous horse or visited a farm here. I live in the woods in Central Stockton next to the original Stockton Country Club. Near Smith Canal and on a quiet circle where mostly  older folks are. We are in a gated community.

My father was Robert Elmer Hartley. Everett was his oldest brother. Everett's son was Harvey. Harvey died in a car accident in the Dominican Republic, March 30, 1963, while serving in the Peace Corps. His only sibling is Dorothy Pearle Hartley Burlingame (on Facebook). Harvey was about 9 years older than me.

Since he took over this year as head of Barclay Press, Eric Muhr has been sending out to a contact list a weekly email column titled "Long Story Short."

In this week's "Long Story Short," he included the following words:

"One of our ongoing projects is a study from T Vail Palmer on reading the Bible with empathy, a study whose first volume we hope to release later this year.
