Tradition, Forbearance, And Tolerance

In these days of polarized thinking there is something refreshing about the traditional Quaker tolerance for other viewpoints.

The qualities of inclusion engendered by tolerance is something very desirable in any day and age, but even more so in our present time.

When membership in so many organisations today carries a "us against them flavor," it sure makes one value the unity that a plurality born out of tolerance provides. We need much more of that!
