Issue 18 June 2018 Finding Home

]23:23. 23:23 of QF&P. This short passage of Quaker Faith and Practice says
so much about the nature of home in our contemporary society. It’s radical
demand that we confront our daily collaboration with housing injustice. It’s
extremely challenging comparison of structures of housing inequality with
the ultimate system of oppression: slavery. It’s frank honesty that the struggle
against inequality will be one of pain and sacri􀏐ice, as well as joy and
empowerment. Yet, more than this, the true force of 23:23 is that it offers a
discernment on “home” that goes beyond bricks and mortar. A meaning of
home in which the personal merges with the political, the spiritual with the
social, and the desire for the transcendent with the need for transformation.
It is this, an inherently more elastic, but still deeply personal understanding
of home which we hope to explore further in the pages of this issue of The
Young Quaker.
