LIVING WITH OPEN HANDS OF EQUALITY

EQUALITY (community)

What is my response to these queries?
What is my response to injustices, to people that are marginalized and disenfranchized: homelessness, poverty, racism, inequality, prejudice, etc? What is my response to ALL forms of inequality . . . whether or not it is something I agree or disagree with?

  • What do I pay attention to? Do I see those that are marginalized… invisible?
  • Are they my friends? Do I express a sense of welcome to all… or just certain people?
  • Do I value the “least of these”? Am I open to their ideas? Do I solicit their input in important decisions? Do I listen to and understand their struggles?
  • Do I take a stand against injustice in any and every form? . . . no matter the cost?
  • “Friends were some of the first to value women as important ministers and to campaign for women’s rights; they became leaders in the anti-slavery movement, and were among the first to pioneer humane treatment for individuals with mental disorders, and for prisoners.” (Wikipedia: Quakers)
