2. Thank you....

My father's family was Quaker but I never asked him and he never said anything about being Quaker.

I have a ways to go in your pamphlet but I do get an aha from the spirit within vs. the sin aspect

I am from New Bedford, Mass. and I had read about alot of the whaling ship owners being Quaker. Because the Quakers were not judgmental toward others was one reason for there being a lot of blacks who came to New Bedford and worked on the whaling ships. It's nice to know that my home town grew from such kindness and understanding.

Thank you for sharing...
