Voodoo Doll on the Refrigerator

A man at Quaker meeting stood to speak the message that was in his heart.

He awoke in the morning to see a voodoo doll on his family’s refrigerator.  Someone had given this doll to his wife as a gift.

His wife explained that the doll came with two pins: one for enemies and one for friends.  He thought about this, since he is the kind of man who would never intentionally hurt anyone.

A pin is not only to cause pain.  A pin can also pinpoint something that needs focus.  The pin for friends could be used as a reminder of those friends who are in stress and who need to held in the light.  And a pin for enemies could be a reminder of those folks whom he needs to forgive.

He goes to the refrigerator at least 3 times a day. This doll is a reminder at least 3 times a day to think about the people who matter to him.
