Illuminate: John (Friends of Jesus)

Leigh Tolton explores Jesus' claim to be the Way, Truth, and Life in the Gospel of John in this week's Illuminate Friends Bible study. She considers his transcendent power over life as he raised Lazarus from the dead, as well as the ways that his claim to be the Way, Truth, and Life have been used by some Christians to try to control others and instill fear in harmful ways.

Brent Bill offers a Friendly Perspective on Lazarus, considering what this experience might have been like for him.

Illuminate: John (Friends of Jesus)

Cherice Bock considers Jesus' offer of "living water," as well as the theme of water in the Gospel of John, in this week's Illuminate Friends Bible study. She encourages us to consider our responsibility to ensure there continues to be clean water accessible to all as we are initiated into Christ's community, even though Friends do not practice rituals involving water using physical elements.

Leigh Tolton reflects in her Friendly Perspective on Jesus calling as disciples men from Nazareth, a place others considered "nothing good" could come from.

Illuminate: John (Friends of Jesus)

On this Sunday, which is both Juneteenth and Father's Day, our Illuminate Friends Bible study is focused this week on Jesus as Bread of Life in the Gospel of John. Jesus feeds the 5,000, providing physical nourishment for those who are literally hungry. Food is available to all God's children (all people) in the form of literal bread and fish shared together, and in terms of spiritual sustenance. Paul Anderson shares more about the metaphor of Jesus as bread in this week's lesson.

In this week's Friendly Perspective, Robin Mohr shares about the Spirit speaking through her as she read the scriptural story of the Samaritan woman at the well on a visit to Friends in Cuba.

Illuminate: John (Friends of Jesus)

The beautiful Christ-hymn of John 1 is explored in this week's Illuminate Friends Bible study, "John: Friends of Jesus." Paul Anderson discusses the clarity in this chapter of Jesus as incarnate Word of God, transcendent and accessible.

Brian C Young shares this week's Friendly Perspective with a focus on John the Baptist. He notes John the Baptist's humility in pointing toward the Messiah rather than trying to compete for popularity or numbers. How might we do likewise?

Join us in learning more about the Gospel of John this summer when you purchase a print or digital copy of "John: Friends of Jesus." You can also learn directly from Illuminate contributors and other participants via a virtual summer series on John through Pendle Hill.

Illuminate: John (Friends of Jesus)

Today was the first day of this quarter's Illuminate Friends Bible study, "John: Friends of Jesus." Renowned scholar on John and Quaker, Paul Anderson, started off the study of John with the passage where Friends draw our denominational name from (John 15:14) and Jesus' command to love one another.

The disciple John is called the Beloved Disciple in the Gospel of John. Charity Kemper Sandstrom reflects on what his experience might have been like, and the experience of being beloved.

Illuminate: Hebrews

For our final week in Hebrews, Jen Higgins-Newman shares in our Illuminate Friends Bible study curriculum about the closing section of Hebrews, which exhorts Christ followers that the main point is mutual love and radical hospitality. She speaks of Jesus' death outside the city walls, a reminder for us of the risk and sacrifice inherent in this communal work of discipleship.

Phil Baisley also emphasizes the mutual love encouraged by the author of Hebrews. He shares a memorable story of feeling loved and accepted in a small act of kindness by a church member when he was a child.

Though this is the last week we are using this quarter's curriculum on Hebrews together, individuals and groups are encouraged to use the study whenever it is appropriate for your group. It can be purchased here in digital and print formats: http://www.barclaypressbookstore.com/Illuminate-Hebrews.html

Illuminate: Hebrews

As the Winter Olympics draw to a close, Paul Mark Almquist offers a timely meditation on Hebrews 12 in our Illuminate Friends Bible study on the metaphor of "running the race" with perseverance and joy.

Melinda Wenner Bradley writes this week's Friendly Perspective, sharing a story about when her child asked why we can't see God's face. She weaves together God's ultimate otherness and intimate presence in the face of those around us.

You can participate in this quarter's curriculum, "Hebrews: Our Connection to Christ," through digital or paper formats. http://www.barclaypressbookstore.com/Illuminate-Hebrews.html

How do we take care of each other? What is our understanding of the Quaker message, the gift it offers our times? How do we become equipped for service?

Derek Brown’s Of Quakers and Pastors (Barclay Press) addresses these questions through the lens of pastoral theology, examining the role that a pastor can play in the life of a dynamic and healthy congregation. While firmly grounded in the evangelical Quaker tradition, Brown's ideas can give unprogrammed Friends much to consider.
The men and women profiled in Faces of Addiction (Barclay Press) are, Carl Blumenthal writes, "so entangled in poverty, violence, crime, family discord, homelessness, scanty education, and meager healthcare, it’s a miracle they have the strength to pose for photos and bare their souls." But Eric K. Hatch's empathetic, respectful portraits lead to a powerful ministry.

Congrats to MFA Alum Rashaunps who has a new poem out in "Resisting Empire: The Book of Revelation as Resistance" by Barclay Press!

http://gatheringinlight.com/2019/09/09/pre-order-the-print-version-of-resisting-empire/
The book of Psalms has rightly been called "the prayer book of the Bible." While not all of the psalms were composed in the form of direct address to God, many of them were. And among those psalms you will find a whole range of emotion. Some are jubilant with thanksgiving and praise, others with humble confession, while still others come from a distraught soul who cries desperately for help or pleads with God for an explanation to the "why questions."

This fall, our Adult Sunday School class will be exploring the Psalms together. We're using the Illuminate Friends Bible Study from Barclay Press, which is written by Friends and for Friends. Join us for fellowship and conversation! Sunday School starts September 8th, after our 10am worship service.
