Beauty and The Gadfly


Dear Editor:

Thank you for Western Friend and the May/June issue that included Joe Morris and his piece, “Longing for Beauty.” For many years, I have worshipped with Joe at our Santa Monica Meeting and his reflections about beauty – and its potential power to heal – moved me, greatly. What wondrous love is this!

Also, I felt real delight as I read Anthony Manousos’s gadfly essay in the May/June Western Friend. Indeed, I loved the cartoon about the need to be irritating and full of reform! I was moved by Anthony’s vulnerability and his openness to the Spirit, as he found multiple ways to be guided by the Inner Teacher. And he ended precisely where the Spirit led him, embracing love and its prophetic power. Thank you and Western Friend for these spiritual wonders!

– Stanford Searl, Santa Monica Monthly Meeting (PacYM)
