The Religious Society of Friends , commonly known as Quakers or Friends , is a religious community founded in England during the 17th century . Quaker congregations are scattered across the world. Though the number of Quakers in the world is rather small, Quakers have shaped the world to a degree far beyond their numbers. Table of contents 1 History

The founder of the Quaker movement was George Fox , who believed that the direct experience of the divine presence was available to all, without the need for any kind of mediation. This was revealed in his autobiography by the words: "There is One, even Christ Jesus , who can speak to my condition." Quakers often express a related belief that there is "that of God in Everyone", sometimes known as the "Inner Light". George Fox rejected the notion of a paid priesthood, believing instead that everyone can be a minister. Traditional Quaker worship, as established during his life, was conducted without any individual in charge of conducting a planned service. Instead, worshippers gathered in silence, which was only interrupted when someone in attendance felt moved by the Spirit to speak. Early Quakerism was full of a sense of spiritual egalitarianism, which included a belief in the spiritual equality of the sexes - remarkable for that time. Both women and men were granted equal authority to speak in Quaker meetings for worship. George Fox's wife, Margaret Fell-Fox was equally vocal and literate as her husband, publishing several tracts in Quakerism's early days.

84. A Lively Concern: The Religious Society Of Friends (Quakers)
A LIVELY CONCERN THE religious society of friends (QUAKERS). by Rachel MacNair.
by Rachel MacNair Friends: Who We Are The Religious Society of Friends, more commonly known as Quakers, began in the religious ferment of England in the 1600s. The basis of all Quaker beliefs is the presence of "that of God" in everyone. Everyone has an "Inner Light" for guidance. Though many choose to ignore it, it is always there to be reached. Though clearly Christian, the early Friends would quote the Koran when speaking with Turks because of the belief that other peoples who also had access to the Inner Light would understand better if spoken to in terms they understood. The Quaker response to those in positions of power who are not willing to listen, even to those who are brutal and insensitive, is a practice called "Speaking Truth to Power," which holds that everyone contains a spark that can be reached with prophetic voices. The Quaker method of worship involves the use of silence so that people can "center down" and be attuned to the Inner Light. Friends sit together in a Meeting for Worship, and speaking occurs when someone is moved of the Spirit to speak. The silence that follows the message is part of the message, to give others a chance to contemplate the point just made. There is no minister or, more accurately, everybody is a minister. All are equally invited to contribute to the spiritual journey of the group. Pastoral work and administrative work are done by committees and by a monthly Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business, which all can attend. Decisions are made by consensus of the group, so that there is no tyranny of the majority and the consciences of all individuals are respected. The Meeting is the group, analagous to a church, and Meetings are associated in larger geographical groups which meet yearly (hence, the Yearly Meeting).

Historic home in Cumbria, England, which served as the nerve center of the religious society of friends (Quakers) in its early days.
Ulverston - Swarthmoor Hall
Ulverston, LA12 0JQ. Tel 01229 583204
Grid Ref 96: SD 283773
E-mail: Swarthmoor Hall, near Ulverston is an Elizabethan house, and is of great importance to the Society of Friends, the Quakers, for it was here that their founder, George Fox, dictated his 'Journal'. George Fox Swarthmoor Hall was the home of Judge Thomas Fell and his wife Margaret. In 1652 George Fox had a vision on Pendle Hill in Lancashire, which led him to discover the 'Westmorland Seekers'. This group worshipped without priests or leaders, settling into silence with any who felt moved by the Holy Spirit. These people became Fox's apostles, and within weeks of Fox's first gathering at Firbank Fell, between Kendal and Sedbergh , he had found his way to Swarthmoor. Although not converted to Quakerism, Judge Fell listened and eventually became an admirer. From this point on, Swarthmoor became a nerve centre of the Quaker movement. Travelling Friends evangelists came to receive encouragement. Margaret Fell administered a fund to help those imprisoned for the faith. Eleven years after Judge Fell's death, Margaret married George Fox. Fox bought some land nearby, and established the Swarthmoor Meeting House, which still exists to this day.

Statement Regarding the Tragic Events of September 11 "As organizations of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) and as members of the human family and children of God, we are profoundly grieved at the loss of life, the suffering, and the sorrow that result from today's tragic events. The God of love and mercy whom we worship and serve surely grieves too in the face of these acts of anger and hatred and the suffering they cause. We pray earnestly for comfort and strength for those who are injured and grieving. So too we hope with all our hearts that, in responding to today's tragic events, all persons will find ways to end the violence that is consuming our world. We offer our gratitude and prayer to those who are responding to this tragedy, rescuing and caring for those who are injured, comforting those who are grieving, and working for peace and reconciliation. The Religious Society of Friends, since its inception in the 1650's has been led to eschew war and violence for any end whatsoever. Time and again we have ministered to the victims of war and violence. We believe that the challenge before us all is to break the cycle of violence and retribution. Seeking God's love and light at this time, we will be holding a public Meeting for Worship at Arch Street Meetinghouse, 4th and Arch Streets, in Philadelphia, PA, on Thursday, September 13th, at 7:30 p.m. All are welcome.

assembled by Dr. Dennis W. Mills MFM History and its forthcoming sesquicentennial On May 13th, 2001, the ad hoc History Committee recognized the beginning of our Meeting Sesquicentennial and made a history of the William and Catherine Wales family available. 150 years ago, on May 12, 1851, the Wales settled in Minneapolis as its first Quakers. In 1855, regular meetings for worship after the manner of Friends began and in 1860 Minneapolis Friends built a meetinghouse at 8th and Hennepin. Who are the builders and worshippers at this meeting house? Are we only a sect of the past or do we really exist today? We, who have been called Seekers of the Truth, Quakers and Friends, are members of the Society of Friends. Yes, we are a sect, but we do not separate ourselves from the world around us.

Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)
The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) had its beginnings in Great Britain in the middle of the 17th century. George Fox traveled far and wide talking to priests and other religious leaders, but was not satisfied with what he heard and what he saw of their practice. Finally he heard a voice which said, "There is one, even Christ Jesus, that can speak to thy condition." When he heard that, his heart lept for joy. Having this revelation, he traveled far and wide sharing it, and he had another revelation of a great people to be gathered. He preached in the hope that "all come to know Christ to be their teacher to instruct them, their counsellor to direct them, their shepherd to oversee them; and might know their bodies to be prepared, sanctified, and made fit temples for God and Christ to dwell in." Many joined the fledgling movement. Some (men and

I also include e-mail or Web links where possible. I post future years' information as it becomes available, not waiting until FWCC has compiled its information, so it is helpful if Friends send information to me before or at the same time it is sent to FWCC.
