A good end cannot sanctify evil means; nor must we ever do evil, that good may come of it... We are too ready to retaliate, rather than forgive... And yet we could hurt no man that we believe loves us. Let us try then what love will do: for if men did once see we love them, we should soon find they would not harm us. Force may subdue, but Love gains: and he that forgives first, wins the laurel.
William Penn

Be patterns, be examples in all countries, places, islands, nations wherever you come; that your carriage and life may preach among all sorts of people, and to them; then you will come to walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in everyone...
George Fox

Can You Tell the Way to Montpellier?

Where they harvest oysters in Méze


Protestors living in a tree in a park in Montpellier

The center of Montpellier is closed to most traffic; the result is an oddly quiet city center

My second host in Montpellier, Patrice. I had the opportunity to hear him sing in the church he attends.

Patrice walked the distance on his pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela. His wife, Nathalie, was a volunteer in Palestine with the International Campaign for the Protection of the Palestinian People.
