We are for justice and mercy and truth and peace and true freedom

I saw also that there was an ocean of darkness and death, but an infinite ocean of light and love, which flowed over the ocean of darkness. And in that also I saw the infinite love of God*; and I had great openings

There’s more than dark enough to drown us all,
pulls with strong currents though it’s overflown.
Mostly, I drift; but sometimes catch the tide
and swept up, thrown between the waves of light
we splutter kingdomwards, make landfall, stumble
bedraggled and squint-eyed, a few steps on.
Testimony: Quakerism and Theological Ethics   By Rachel Muers

23.11: We are not for names, nor men, nor titles of Government, nor are we for this party nor against the other … but we are for justice and mercy and truth and peace and true freedom, that these may be exalted in our nation, and that goodness, righteousness, meekness, temperance, peace and unity with God*, and with one another, that these things may abound.

Edward Burrough, 1659


* My word would be  ‘Love’.
