Experience of God

As we reflect on our experience, intimations emerge about the nature of God. In this we are helped by the experiences of others which enlighten our path. We remember Nayler in his suffering testifying to ‘a spirit which delights to do no evil nor to revenge any wrong’ and Barclay when he first went to Friends’ meetings, feeling the evil weakening in him and the good being raised up. We recall those who have been upheld by love, or filled with joy, or called to commit their lives to service, or who have sensed a divine reality in the wonder of the world or in the depths of being or in the hardest challenges of life.

Take heed, dear Friends, to the promptings of love and truth in your hearts, which are the leadings of God.
