I am Ellis Hein, a long-time woodturner with a life-long interest in the gospel message preached by George Fox and the early Quakers. I am active in the work of the New Foundation Fellowship, a group of people called forth to continue the work begun by Fox and the early Quakers. In its simplest form, that gospel can be condensed to “Christ is come to teach His people Himself.” This is a phrase Fox used to sum up what he said to various groups, some of those sermons lasting three hours and more. This blog is dedicated to the task of fleshing out that single sentence, showing the relevance of that message to the world we live in today.
Who I am
God asked Ezekiel, "Can these bones live?"
I read the writings of the early Friends and asked God, "Can't these old bones live?"
Ezekiel's valley filled with living beings.
God told me, "Not their bones, but yours must live today."
God told Ezekiel, "The people shall know I am God when they are brought forth from their grave."
"The day is coming and now is," said Jesus, "when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son. And those who will hear shall come forth from their grave."
This blog, then, is an invitation to hear.
