Continuing the Quaker Bible

Forest had a noble 'clerkship' here for several years; you may have noticed that I am the only other (listed) contributor.  You may also perceive that we began the blog in Nov of 2004.  As one of the earliest participants had devoted a lot of time on it.

But one's values change; the originator dropped out after several years; several years after that I more or less dropped out, too.  We were fortunate that Forest was here to carry the responsibility.  I occasionally tried to encourage him, but my priorities were (and are) otherwise.

Now it has been empty for about six months.  I feel the need to keep it alive.  I've decided to lean on Oswald Chambers to maintain continuity.  You may find him a good substitute.  Here is his entry for today:

"Moses went out unto his brethren, and looked on their burdens." Exodus 2:11. We might review the chapter and talk about it.  Failing that I suggest that Friends (and friends) may profit from seeing what Oswald had to say about it.  Feel free to comment.

Okay, I've read the commentary (which could have been posted directly here?)

and it sounds very much like some of my own experience; I've had intuitions of things I was intended to redress, and put all my gifts to work redressing them, and it all came to pppppf!

So I had to back off, take another look-- and now it feels like time to invite folks out of Egypt...

It doesn't mean I was wrong to attempt earlier, but a few forty yearses on the old sheep ranch can give one time to reassess-- and now, God remains ready to help, & I can walk with God a little more humbly, walk with uppity mortals a little less so.

Oh, the many things I already knew better than!-- but couldn't help!
