James Dickinson

James Dickinson (1659-1741) was a well-known and much-beloved minister in the Society of Friends, whose long life was spent in tireless labor for the edification of the church and for the good of souls. In the service of the ministry, he travelled throughout England, Ireland, and Scotland; undergoing ​many ​sufferings in times of persecution. He visited Friends in Ireland twelve times, three times in America, once in Holland and ​also in ​Germany.​ ​His ministry was not in the enticing words which man’s wisdom teaches, but in the demonstration of the Spirit and power, and was effectual to the convincing and gathering of many whose hearts became settled on the Rock Christ Jesus, knowing Him to be their true light and teacher.

It may be truly said of [James Dickinson] that he went not about to publish the gospel of life and salvation with enticing words which man’s wisdom teaches, but in the power and demonstration of the Spirit. It was by being obedient to the powerful workings thereof in himself, and by waiting diligently for the movings and openings of it, that he became well qualified for that service.
