Imagine the Dalai Lama comes to your part of the world and decides to visit your Meeting for Worship. This may be his first visit to an unprogrammed Friend’s meeting. After worship, during fellowship, he approaches you.
The Dali Lama asks: “Tell me about Quakers. What makes you unique?”
You respond: “We believe there is that of God in everyone.”
