On Caring for One Another

The following quote from Baltimore Yearly Meeting’s Faith and Practice was read at the Rise of Meeting on August 18, 2019:

“In addition to its many religious forms, Healing also includes many arts and sciences. There is the art of listening, the art of smiling, the art of empathy, of knowing just what people need, and not rushing in to offer help that is not suitable. Then there is the healing that comes through prayer in its various forms, through the laying on of hands, through music and dance, painting and color, through communion with and understanding of the world of nature, and through friendship.“

Jim Pym, 1990
