One of the pleasures of the year-end holidays is catching up with friends who live near and far, some even continents away.
Here are great messages from a few of those friends:
Rebecca, Kundalini teacher in Bali, says, “Open your heart. Bow to beauty, bow to truth, bow to love. Whatever doesn’t serve you, shake it off.”
Harvey, 80+ year-old Servas and Quaker Friend from rural Minnesota, sent along these two quotations that seem particularly apt for 2017:
“Power concedes nothing without demand. It never has and never will.”
– Fredrick Douglass
“Justice will not be served until those who are unaffected are as outraged as those who are.”
– Benjamin Franklin
Kristine from Chicago reports, “So–things are good here . . . in fact, I have moments of unbelievable happiness . . . I bet you do too!”
May 2017 bring many blessings to you and your family and community – wherever you are. May you feel unbelievable happiness, work for justice, and open your heart in 2017 and beyond.
