That of God in Ourselves

At Meeting for Worship, Melissa shared this quote:

"George Fox counseled us to walk cheerfully over the world, seeking that of God in everyone. It would be absurd if the regard we show others was not also meant for ourselves."

She came upon the quote in the article Self-Compassion and Quakers by Joe Morris of Santa Monica Friends Meeting. She queried Friends, "How do you show yourself self-compassion?"

Friends shared messages about taking a risk to reach out to someone else, observing their environment, naming their hurt, and acknowledging the importance of small steps.
