Everyone will know that restoration is from the Just One, the Prince of peace, the One who removes the curse and becomes the blessing.
Christ rises up in you and from you, and fills, and will fill the earth, both humankind and the whole creation, fire, water, earth, and air; for the blessing will be everywhere.
Gerard Winstanley, 1609-1676, British radical and mystic; Baptist lay preacher before becoming a “Digger” and eventually a Quaker. Quoted in Entempling.
