We Think We're Separate by Robin Mohr, October 2016

God Loves Us All by Phil Lord, March 2017
What the world needs as much as ever is to hear that still, small voice: a voice that asks us not to fear the fearful; that reminds us that the rain falls on the just and the unjust; and that directs our moral obligation away from ourselves and toward the stranger, the poor, the incarcerated prisoner, and the victims of violence and oppression. It is a voice that tells us that any work or sacrifice without love is a waste of time, and that so long as God dwells within each of us, each of us is capable of being transformed. We can hear that voice, and we can respond to the Spirit in others, if we are obedient to the experience of Friends through the ages and to what our testimonies continue to reveal. Our witness will not fail if we do not fail our witness.
