Our mother's response to the 'graying' of Quakerism
Christ Jesus bids us consider the lilies how they grow, in more royalty than Solomon. But contrary to this, we (are told we) must look at no colours, nor make anything that is changeable colours as the hills are, nor sell them, nor wear them; but we must be all in one dress and one colour; this is a silly poor Gospel. It is more fit for us, to be covered with God's Eternal Spirit, and clothed with his Eternal Light, which leads us and guides us into Righteousness.—Margaret Fell, 1700
There is more than one way to go gray!
