When has the Light urged you to speak out or stand up for something?

Chapter 25 of Minding the Light: Our Collective Journal is now available online and attached as a PDF file, below. For this chapter, we invited Friends to respond to the query, "When has the Light urged you to speak out or stand up for something?"  In response, we received six stories, one from a 9-year old Friend.

What stories rise for you as you sit this query? We invite you to read these stories and consider sharing your response on QuakerQuaker, either as a response to this post or in a blog post of your own. 

There are links below to the West Hills Friends website and Minding the Light website, where all 25 chapters can be found.  There's also a link to a PDF version of Chapter 25.

Minding the Light is a publication of West Hills Friends, a Quaker meeting in Portland, Oregon. Using the guidelines of "worship sharing," we invite members and attenders to reflect on a specific query for each chapter.

Blessings!
Sally Gillette, Clerk
