Hi, Patricia. As a matter of fact, a new Philadelphia Friends of Jesus group might be launching soon. I am planning to go down for the launch, once it is scheduled. I was already planning to reach out to you when I went to Philadelphia so that you and I could meet up, but now that I know that you are interested in the FoJF, I will keep you posted on that, too!

Life at the moment is rather hectic for me, so it might be a while before I find the document and read the passage.

I should mention that Lewis Benson was well read in Protestant theology, and was particularly attracted to and influenced by the theology of Emil Brunner. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emil_Brunner I suspect that Brunner's theology enters into Benson's reading of George Fox.
We don't study Quaker sources in an intellectual vacuum. Our examination of Quaker texts and experiences is inevitably influenced by other influences at work in our lives. And Lewis Benson was no exception!
Patricia: I wrote a response, and then mistakenly deleted it. I wish I could resurrect it, but I don't know how to do that. I'll try a bit later to reconstruct what I wrote!
I clearly did not understand your words correctly. Thank you for taking time to clarify for me.
