FoL Newsletter Excerpts by Margaret Lawson (1974-1989)


"It seems to me that the Bible caters for people at all stages of belief but, as someone once said, 'The rung of a ladder was never meant to rest upon, but only to hold a man's foot long enough to enable him to put the other somewhat higher.' Surely that higher rung is not too high for the Christian, and especially the consecrated Christian. God is calling you, now, to come up higher."

"We aim at the establishment of 'Thou shalt not kill' in its true meaning without all the muddled thinking to which it has been subjected by those unwilling to face up to its truth."

"Our Symbol. Perhaps a word regarding our symbol would not be out of place. It consists of the merging of the two symbols for 'Life,' spiritual and physical, as I understand them, the Cross and the Tree. The sacrificial meaning of the Cross must not be forgotten, the sacrifice of ourselves with all it means, including very often old beliefs and traditions, as we seek to do the will of God in everything. We find that all life is sacred and all life is one, therefore one part cannot be made to suffer without the whole suffering."

"The Aim alongside the symbol speaks for itself. Love for God, by whatever name He is called, which shows in a love for all creation, human, animal and environmental can be the unifying factor between all religions without one religion thinking it is better than another."
