Week 3

The wonderful thing about faith is that it works.

The wonderful thing about silence is that it speaks.

The wonderful thing about peace is that it conquers in the end.

Gleanings from 1955 Canadian Yearly Meeting

Week 4


An old man planted a tree which gave fruit but only after seventy years.

Someone asked, “do you expect to eat the fruit of that tree?”

The old man answered, “ I didn’t find the world empty when I came into

it. Other people planted for me before I was born. So, I, in turn, plant

for those who will come after me.”

-from Palestine The Learning
