A Little More Background

The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) is a group that practices a form of spirituality which emphasizes the personal experience of God in one’s life over any specific doctrine or belief. While it has its roots in Christianity, it is open to the Light where it may be found. Quakers understand the necessity of first listening to God before working in the world. They affirm the equality of all people before God, regardless of race, station in life, or gender, and this belief leads them into a range of social concerns.
