Robert Manning

Portrait of Robert Manning 1771-1857
Ancestor of Olivia’s Father, Manning Robertson
He published a book addressed as follows:
“Dear Friends, You millions of the human race – Let us Love One Another”
He then listed all the genocidal atrocities committed by world religions.
As this included Christianity,
The Manning Robertson family burnt every copy save one.
Olivia found this in a secret drawer as a young woman, and felt overwhelmed
at being addressed in this way by her ancestor.
As she rightly says, we have all been given this message many times
But somehow, sadly, we’ve never got round to it…..
She is honoured to finally pass on his heartfelt message
“It’s taken a long, long time.” She says. “But better late than never.”
His is the central message of the Fellowship and of the Goddess.
