The theme of building bridges has been central for us, as Friends, since we began sitting silently to hear the promptings of the Inner Teacher who transcends the temporal and teaches us directly. Following leadings given by the Spirit, many have worked to bridge chasms between people in the name of social justice. There is much to learn from the ancient people in the Bible who were also called to cross the barriers that separated groups of people and that separated humans from God. The stories explored in this pamphlet are Moses leading the people to the Promised Land, Isaiah being called as a prophet, Jonah ministering to the people of Nineveh, and the woman with an issue of blood seeking healing from Jesus.
