Today’s Friendly Reflection for Lent could not be more perfect for the situation we find ourselves in today! Here is the full quote, from early Friend John Woolman:
The place of prayer is a precious habitation: … I saw this habitation to be safe, to be inwardly quiet, when there was great stirrings and commotions in the world.
–John Woolman, 1770
John Woolman was a man of deep, tender, living faith and singular conviction who described his journey beautifully in The Journal of John Woolman (available online free and an inspiring read).
Today as the news continues to unfold and we make smart and safe daily choices for ourselves and our loved ones, let’s remember to stay in touch with that quiet space within, that “secret habitation” where all is well, in God and with God, now and always.
