As part of the rethinking of QuakerQuaker, I've started a QuakerQuaker account on Mastodon. Known best as a "Twitter alternative," it's a micro-blogging site that is much more open than Twitter. In November I wrote a post on my personal blog, Quakers on Mastodon,…Continue

I'm not one to make New Years resolutions most of the time but it seems as if modernizing QuakerQuaker should be one for 2023. While it still boasts over 3,700 members, it's built on Ning, a long-outdated and semi-abandoned platform that has any number of frustrating technical limitations. QuakerQuaker isn't used as much as it should be, even by its members.
Reimagining QuakerQuaker and setting up the tools to make it work will cost some money.…Continue

George Fox–– I…denied the drawing of carnal weapons against…any man on earth; for my weapons are spiritual, which take away the occasion of war, and lead to peace.
1660 Declaration to Charles II We utterly deny all outward wars and strife and fightings with outward weapons, for any end or under any…Continue

Menno Simons–– All Christians are commanded to love their enemies… Tell me, how can a Christian defend Scripturally retaliation, rebellion, war, striking, slaying, torturing, stealing, robbing and plundering and burning cities and conquering countries?

“What is the duty of Salvationists at such a crisis? … One thing is plain―every true soldier of The Salvation Army would cry day and night to God to avert so dreadful a calamity. Let him shut his ears to all the worldly, unscriptural, unchristian talk about war being a necessity. It cannot be a necessity before God that tens of thousands of men should be launched into eternity with all manner of revengeful passionate feelings in their souls … Whatever may be the right method of settling…Continue

But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart (Luke 2:19).
"And you may see...how Mary wrapped Christ in swaddling clothes, and how tender she was of the heavenly birth, conceived by the Holy Ghost. And must all true and tender Christians, that receive Him in the Spirit... She kept all the sayings that were spoken of Christ, and pondered them in her heart. And so should every true Christian."

She...laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn (Luke 2:7).
"And there the shepherds found him swaddled, lying in a manger. A poor entertainment for the Saviour of the world, and King of kings, and Lord of lords..."

For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich (II Corinthians 8:9).
"Now here you see the Son of God, and the Lord of glory, what entertainment He had at His birth, amongst them that were in the pomp of the world. You know a manger is in a stable, where you feed your horses in. And who were Mary and Christ's visitors, but the country shepherds that watched their flocks by night...…Continue

§1. Chrysostom and the putting away of the immediacy of Christ's presence. Draft 1
"It were indeed meet for us not at all to require the aid of the written word, but to exhibit a life so pure, that the Grace of the Spirit should be instead of books to our souls, and that as these are inscribed with ink, even so should our hearts be with the spirit. But since we have utterly put away from us this Grace, come, let us at any rate embrace the second best course."
