Window sign on equality

Another excerpt from Faith and Practice in our front window:

Friends' testimony on equality is rooted
in the holy expectation that there is that of God in everyone,
including adversaries and people from widely different stations,
life experiences, and religious persuasions.
All must therefore be treated with integrity and respect.

The conviction that each person is equally a child of God
opened the way for women to be leaders
in the Religious Society of Friends:
both women and men ministered
in Friends Meetings from earliest days.
