Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

Resources and Materials

This section of “Power Tools” presents on-line resources that are in-depth explorations/explanations of a wide variety of topics that may be of use to Friends’ meetings, large and small, new and old. Their purpose is not just to provide “how to” guidance, but to make explicit the spiritual Truth underlying all that we do within the Quaker way. Reaffirming and intentionally trying to live into this underlying spiritual reality is the strength and attraction of the Religious Society of Friends.
