Did you know... The Germantown Quaker Petition against slavery of 1688 was the first protest against African American slavery made by a religious body in the English colonies?
Drafted by Francis Pastorius and three other Quakers in Germantown, Pennsylvania on behalf of the Germantown Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, the petition raised the issue of slavery with the Quaker Meeting which they attended.
The petition was based upon the Bible’s Golden Rule, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you,” urging the Meeting to abolish slavery.
It argued that every human, regardless of belief, color, or ethnicity, has rights that should not be violated.
Throughout the petition the reference to the Golden Rule was used to argue against slavery and for universal human rights.

An Easter prayer...
You are my Savior, my Strength, my Power, my Resurrection, and my Life.
Thank You that You make all things new. Thank You for making me a new creation in Christ the moment I accepted Your Son as my savior. Thank You for the victory and power I have in Your precious name. No matter what life brings my way, I can look confidently to You because You hold the keys of death which means I am alive in Christ.
Jesus paved way for me to live a life of freedom from sin. Thank You that He made the way. I praise You for the love you lavish on me. May Your light shine brightly on me and through me. May I make a difference in the lives of others by sharing Your truth. Thank You for such an incredible gift. To You be the honor, the glory, and the power on the Resurrection Day.
In Jesus’ Name,
