Sojourners had this quote in their newsletter for this week.... The Seeds of War
"O, that we who declare war against wars, and acknowledge our trust to be in God only, may walk in the light, and therein examine our foundation and motives in holding onto money! May we look upon our estates, our treasures, the furniture of our houses, and our garments, and try whether the seeds of war have nourishment in these, our possessions."
- John Woolman, Quaker abolitionist
Exactly...the seeds of war lie in our materialism and our love of money.
