Worth Contemplating

“We do not want you to copy or imitate us. We want to be like a ship that has crossed the ocean, leaving a wake of foam, which soon fades away. We want you to follow the Spirit, which we have sought to follow, but which must be sought anew in every generation.”

– First generation Quakers at Balby, York in the late 17th century, as quoted in the book Why We Live In Community by Eberhard Arnold
