Query: Simplicity
What in my present life most distracts me from God? What am I ready to release so that I can give my attention to what matters most? How do the ways in which I choose to use my time, my possessions, my money, and my energy reflect my most deeply held values? How do we support one another in our search for a simpler life?

Quote:
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. In that also I saw the infinite love of God, and I had great openings. -- George Fox

Social Concerns Box
The Social Concerns Box for January is for the Torture Abolition & Survivors Support Coalition (TASSC). TASSC is an organization founded by and for torture survivors, the only one of its kind. The mission of TASSC is to end the practice of torture wherever it occurs (in some 150 countries) and to empower survivors, their families, and communities wherever they are.
