My Friend John Edminster, of 15th Street Meeting, has for some time been making a regular practice of selecting a group of scripture readings each week, usually united by some theme, and sharing them with interested members of 15th Street Meeting and others. A few Friends, under the care and sponsorship of the Ministry and Worship Committee, have been reading from these selections in a small group on Sunday mornings just a few minutes prior to the 11 a.m. worship.
John's selections often bring together passages whose connection would not have been obvious otherwise. I personally have been very helped by the practice of reading and considering the passages he calls to our attention. With his permission, I have now established a new blog
with the purpose of making the selections available to others. It is possible that I, too, will recommend other passages from time to time.
