Living at Peace

Quaker hatQuakers are known for their pacifist views, but even the most devout Quaker has his limits.

There is a story told about an old Quaker who awoke in the middle of the night to discover a burglar in his home. While the thief was looting the place, the homeowner quietly got his shotgun and tiptoed up behind him. Standing only a few feet away from the intruder, he announced his presence. “Friend,” he said calmly, “I would not harm thee for the world, but thou art standing where I am about to shoot.”

“If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.”—Romans 12:18.
