QuakerSpeak, May 2020

Have you seen the one with Friend Mosi Harrington talking about the power of lightheartedness to help us get through dark times? She shares some real‐life funny stories that show the playful nature of Spirit.

“It’s definitely one of our Quaker faults that we take ourselves too seriously, and it gets in the way sometimes of us doing good work. And we tend to be judgmental sometimes.… God has put us in this gorgeous world, and if we just go like little moles, looking neither to the right or left, I think that frankly, God gets pissed, and that’s when we are unhappy.”

Mosi Harrington, member of Adelphi (Md.) Meeting
