“Two Faces of Liberty,” by Lilith Quinlan: Republished from Friends Journal, August 1984

Friends, This 1987 Friends Journal article has been republished with permission on the Quaker Universalist Fellowship blog at universalistfriends.org/weblog/liberty-quinlan.

Given America’s current persecution of Central American immigrants, it almost seems as if nothing has changed since Friends Journal first published Lilith Quinlan's article.

The cover photo by Janice Hill, courtesy of American Friends Service Committee, is of a Salvadorian boy in a refugee camp in Honduras.

A teacher by vocation, Lilith Quinlan co-directed of Common Ground, a faith community working for peace and justice, and a member of Baton Rouge (La.) Meeting. This meditation was part of her meeting’s declaration of sanctuary, April 26, 1984.

Blessings,
Mike Shell
