putting their faith into practice.
How do we seek truth by which to live? How do we know it when we find it? In what ways does my life speak of my beliefs and values? In what ways is my life out of harmony with the truth as I know it? Why?
Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations, wherever you come, that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them. Then you will come to walk cheerfully over the earth, answering that of God in everyone. -- George Fox
Social Concerns Box
The Social Concerns Box for April is for scholarships to the Ramallah Friends Schools in the West Bank. Most of the money for two scholarships will be raised at Spring Fling on April 27 (see details above). Or contribute to the social concerns box. It is an opportunity for us to help build peace in the Middle East.
