We will wait or host you at “Amici degli Amici” (Our Friends of Friends’ circle)

Ecumenici is looking for any people who is at disposal to host our friends in Milan (Italy) during the week-end from the next 26th to the next 27th of September for our usual meeting of “Gli Amici degli Amici” (Our Friends of Friends’ circle). We will meet together without sacrament, sermons or acting rituals: we are simply going to wait in silence God’s inspiration…if it would come.
 Try to listen to your inner grace of God!

“Your strength is to stay quiet and firm and to be regenerated by God’s strength. It is required that you know how to wait the moment when you will be before God, through the Holy Spirit that is inside you…and, my friends, wherever you are, listen to each others, basing your faith above the eternal truths, and be careful that your words come from the eternal life”.

                                                                                                                                                                                      Ep. 46 (1653). From the “Letters” by Fox

 The Friends took for granted the fact that The Messia, the New  Adam, cancelled the Original Sin, and that the Messia’s inspiration enlights every men and women, apart from his/her belonging to any Faith, Church or his/her real knowledge of Christ.

“God’s inspiration enlights every man” (Giov. 1.7.), this versicle is the Quakers’ badge.

The effect of this idea is the possibility to build immediately a new life, regenerating the original conditions of the Eden. There is the real possibility to found a new peaceful reign endeed (Isaia 11, 6-8: “The wolf and the lamb will live together and a young boy will lead them. They won’t act in a wrong way neither sack any more, because God’s wiseness fills in their minds as the water fills in the oceans”).

 

Concerning the faith, we believe that each man/woman has the Holy Spirit or the God’s inspiration inside him/her, and that outward signs as sacred texts or sacraments are not necessary. We believe only in a real and truly faith, based on silence and, perhaps, on inspired words.

Only in a comunity gathered in silence, the Manster comes, the resurrected appears, the God’s inspiration reveals itself, the prophets says their inspirred words. But we believe in the mistic silence of meditation too, in the stillness, which are presence and imitation of God: His eternal life.
 We can start to exchange texts that are against war and violence’s idea, against death penalty or spiritual death, against all kind of political Authorities or political hierarchies and begin to consider as brothers each of us to live in a new reign… starting from that, they will understand that we are Friends of Friends, that shall meet every month in the geografical area of Milan, Italy.

Come and tell us about your life experience made of non violence, emancipation, democratic participation to political life. Tell us of your fighting against the oppression of human rights. We wil listen to you.

 

The meeting is at 4 p.m. of next 27th of September in Legnano (near Milan, Italy), in Via A. Vespucci, 72 ( an area behind the station – for informations call this number 392 1943729). Just in case we will find at disposal a meeting room in Milan, we will inform all of you in time through a message on ecumenici@tiscali.it

 

Ways to reach us: Ferrovie dello Stato – Bus STIE from Piazzale Cadorna, Milan – Motorway Milano/Varese, Legnano or Castellanza exit.

 

On that time [Fox] teaches in silence, becoming himself an example. He made big efforts to save men from rituals (selfperformances), testifying itself and looking for Christ’s inspiration inside them………

Dietrich Bonhoeffer

We must act and dare the appropiateness and not whatever comes to our mind not floating in the likelihood but grasp the reality as brave as we can be freedom lies in action not in the absence of mind obedience knows the essence of good and satisfies it, freedom dares to act and returns God the ultimate judgment of what is right and what is wrong, Obedience performs blindly but Freedom is wide awake Freedom wants to know why, Obedience has its hands tied, Freedom is inventive obedient man respects God’s commands and by virtu of his Freedom, he creats new commands. Both Obedience and Freedom come true in responsability (Dietrich Bonhoeffer)
