Do you promote social justice...?

Living in Hume precludes my attending Sunday meetings of Friends Meeting of Washington. But each month I receive the Meeting's weekly newsletter. To the degree that quakers have a body of doctrine, it is often expressed as questions, called queries. Wahington Friends Newsletter always begins with a query. This month's query is entitled, "The Social Order."

Do you promote social justice and make your life a testimony to fair dealing? Do you seek to understand and appreciate differing cultures and social values? Do you support fair treatment of all, regardless of race, gender, age or other differences? Are you concerned for those in our society who are disadvantaged? Do you take your full share of civic responsibility by voting and giving service? Do you oppose the use of land, labor, technology and capital for human exploitation or in ways destructive to other living things?
