This is an eloquent prophetic message from a young Quaker that challenges us to live in integrity. He is speaking truth to ;power, the power that most of us have (but so often deny) as educated middle-class Americans or first-worlders (even if we earn "not much").

The challenge is profound. It is also perennial. It seems to come to us again in every generation, thank the Spirit. (See for example PHP 326, 1996, Liberation Theology for Quakers by Alice and Stoughton Lynd, and PHP 145, 1966, What Doth the Lord Require of Thee? by Mildred Binns Young.)… (more)
