I found particularly compelling the James Naylor quote as shared by Noah Baker Merrill.  However, A.J. Mendoza's comments at the end are profound as well, and...   well it's all worth sharing!   See what you think.

We watched this one before going to Meeting on Sunday.  I think I'll watch it again . . . right now!  Love it!

Thanks Olivia

I just now had a chance to look at this.  Great comments on the divine Light.

The Naylor quote is very compelling indeed.  I find James Naylor's whole life compelling.  His "there is a spirit" is one of the most beautiful pieces ever written. 

I am reminded of a discussion I had with an elderly lady when I was a young man.  I was giving a lot of thought to God.. looking for answers... seeking.  I ask this lady for advice. One thing she said, that has stayed with me all these years, and I have found it to be true is, " when someone speaks the TRUTH to you concerning GOD it will ring like a bell".    A lot of Naylor's words seem to "ring like a bell" to me.

I've watched this several times.  Well done!
