Proclaim Liberty Throughout the Land <– Leviticus


For why should my freedom be limited by what someone else thinks? Corinthians 10:29

Set this year apart as holy, a time to proclaim freedom throughout the land for all who live there.

It will be a jubilee year for you, when each of you may return to the land that belonged to your ancestors and return to your own clan.

Leviticus 25:10
Origin of the Quaker motto that was
inscribed on the Liberty Bell at the suggestion of Isaac Norris
