    I love this interview, love the way Greg Williams describes how it is the Spirit that he listens to and how it is in the Spirit that we as Quakers seek to be grounded, when we join in the Black Lives Matter movement or enter into any social justice work. The image he creates of Bayard Rustin exhorting Dr. King to refuse to take up or carry guns is powerful. Thank you, Quakerspeak. Thank you, Greg Williams.

    Wonderful to see and hear Greg Williams speak his truth so simply and clearly. Blessings on his good works and thanks for representing Friends so very well. And thanks to Quaker Speak and the fabulous director for making such good product.

    Greg’s approach to black lives matter is a valuable message for PYM about a constructive way forward. Quakers can make a significant contribution by our deeds and our spiritual grounding as we partner with like-minded social justice activists.

    Yes, we must speak, not to show we’re there but because we’re drawn. And, when we’re small in numbers, that’s hard.
