Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends
a Quaker Community in Lansdowne, Pennsylvania

Lansdowne Friends Meeting

First Day School at Lansdowne Friends Meeting

Quakers are an active, involved faith-based community living in the modern world. We are a diverse group; the Religious Society of Friends consists of several distinct branches. We continue our traditional testimonies of non-violence, social equality, integrity, and simplicity, which we interpret and express in a variety of ways. Today, many Friends include stewardship of our planet as one of our testimonies.

"Let the sense of kinship inspire us to unceasing efforts toward a social order free of violence and oppression, in which no one’s development is hindered by meager income, insufficient education, or too little freedom in directing his or her own affairs. Friends are advised not only to minister to those in need, but also to seek to know the facts of social and economic ills so as to work for the removal of those ills. Let the Friendly testimony that there is that of God in everyone lead us to cherish every human being regardless of race or class, and to encourage efforts to overcome prejudices and antagonisms." Faith and Practice 2017, Extracts: Advices IV, page 110.

Quote of the Week 5/12/2019

Faith and Practice 2017, Deepening our faith: Meeting for Business

- How do we sustain prayerful consideration of all aspects of an issue and address difficult problems with a search for truth that is unhurried by the pressures of time?

- Do we recognize that we speak through our inaction as well as our action?
