Dear Friends:

 

Please consider this travel minute for our beloved Friend, Radh Achuthan.

 

His leading regarding Global Truth and Reconciliation calls for Friends' attention and embrace everywhere.

 

Peconic Bay Meeting approved a statement 3/17/02 that was then endorsed 7/13/02 by the Long Island Quarterly Meeting for Radh, regarding a need to adhere to, "physical and spiritual non-violence" in efforts to resolve global inequities. He envisions a non-governmental Global Truth and Reconciliation Commission as one approach to consider.

 

We have released him under the weight of this concern. He asks that we pray together that, "God bless the world rather than parts of it"--that we carry the message of inclusion, not exclusion, in our hearts and in our actions.

 

We seek with this travel minute the hope that you welcome Radh, listen and possibly endorse his concern, praying that this Spirit may be stirred among you and guide his next steps in your care.

 With thanks,
