From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation search "Quaker" redirects here. For other uses, see Quaker (disambiguation) English dissenter George Fox was an important Quaker in the 17th century. His central teaching that Christ has come to teach his people himself forms the basis of modern Quaker faith and practice The Religious Society of Friends is a name used by a range of independent religious organizations which all trace their origins to a Christian movement in mid-17th century England and Wales Other names used by some of these organisations include Friends Church and Quaker . A central belief was that ordinary people could have a direct experience of the eternal Christ. Today different groups of Friends worship in a variety of ways. Some Friends worship in silence with no human leader and no fixed programme—mainly in Europe, Australia, New Zealand and parts of North America. Some Friends worship with a programme of readings and hymns led by a pastor—mainly in Africa, Asia, South America, and parts of North America. Some worship in a way that incorporates elements of both styles. Some branches of the Religious Society of Friends are known to the public by testifying to their religious beliefs in their actions and the way they live their lives. Such

Quakers - Seeking the Light Within
Sunday September 28 2003
Summary:
A look at the history and experiences of The Society of Friends - Quakers - in Australia and their disproportionate contribution to education and peace activism.
Story:
Intro:
Hello and welcome to Compass. Im Geraldine Doogue.
In the current climate of international tension the threat of hostilities never quite goes away.
Tonight we profile a religious organisation whose response to the challenge of war is the vigorous pursuit of peace.
It began over three hundred and fifty years ago but most people know little about the organisation called the Religious Society of Friends, better known as the Quakers. Throughout history their numbers have been small but their influence considerable.
Tonight we meet a group of people who may not have met but who all call themselves friends. Theyre on a shared journey that reflects both their beliefs and their determination that their lives be a testimony to those beliefs.
Peter Jones
Quakerism represents a road that you walk on. Its a search.

Quakers
The Quakers (Society of Friends) was formed in the 17 th Century. It was thought that a man called George Fox helped form the group and gave its name Quakers. The name Quakers started as an insult to Fox when the judge said to him, You quake at the presence of God. He was standing in court after being one of the leaders who started Quakers, which was against the law to worship in any other way than the Roman Catholic way. th contained gold icons and were beautiful places. The Meeting House had no ministers or priests as they believe in equal rights. The Meeting House was a practical building and was simply for the community and worship to a higher power or God. The service, which has no structure or hierarchy (warden), begins when the first person enters the building and sits down. The service continues as more people enter the room and everyone sits in silence gathering their thoughts. When someone feels moved by the spirit they may speak, dance, sing or read the Bible to express their worship. They believe you only get out of the service what you put in. The service is very relaxed and informal it is between God and yourself as they have no set rules and their conscience decides. They have various groups like study, discussion, and fun groups for children. They believe that God speaks directly to each person in the room and he is discovered within you.

HIGHLIGHTS Quaker Beliefs Jobs with Quaker Organizations Finding Friends Peace Testimony ... Directories of Quaker Organizations What are "Quakers"? Quakers are members of the Religious Society of Friends, a faith that emerged as a new Christian denomination in England during a period of religious turmoil in the mid-1600's, and is practiced today, in a variety of forms, around the world. To members of this religion, the words "Quaker"and "Friend" mean the same thing.
Quakers are: an active, involved faith-based community living in the modern world. We are a diverse people consisting of several distinct branches. We continue our traditional testimonies of pacifism, 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.
Quakers are not: Amish, Anabaptists, Shakers or Puritanswe come from a separate tradition than these other groups. We mostly don't dress like the man on the box of oats anymore, and today we hardly ever call people "thee."
The Quaker Information Center works on behalf of the Religious Society of Friends to answer questions from Friends and non-Friends alike, directing inquirers to information and resources from and about the Society of Friends. The Center was located in Philadelphia and under the capable leadership of Chel Avery until July 2010. The Quaker Information Center is now a virtual center provided as a service of the

Fearless in nature, and seldom intimidated by larger birds, other pets in the family, or anything else they meet up with, Quakers refuse to accept themselves as the smallest members of the family. Quakers are often considered to be one of the best talkers in the small bird groups. Capable of speech, mimicing sounds, and even singing songs that they are taught, I often tell people that this is a bird that the more you put into a relationship with, the more you will receive back ten-fold!

  • Who are the Quakers?
    Quakerism's 17th century English founders envisioned it as the restoration of original Christianity, and like the first Christians, were imprisoned, tortured, and executed for their beliefs. In the 17th and 18th centuries, large numbers of Friends emigrated to the American Quaker colonies, where they formed prosperous settlements in New Jersey, Rhode Island, Delaware, North Carolina, and Pennsylvania. The vast majority of the 300,000 Friends today are Pastoral, and about half live in Bolivia, Guatemala, and Kenya. About 90,000 Liberal and Pastoral Quakers live in North America. Perhaps 400 practicing Conservative Friends live in Ohio, Iowa, and North Carolina, mostly in the same rural areas we have occupied for 200 years. Some additional Conservative meetings exist around the world.
    What do we believe?
    Quakerism, as Conservative Quakers practice it, is Christianity cleaned and polished down to its very essence, stripped of the theological corrosion and doctrinal encrustations added over the last 1700 years. Like the earliest Christians, we believe that God is accessible to everyone now, today, hereand that Jesus Christ, the Logos, the Word of God, the Inward Light, is willing to teach us individually how to come to Him and how to live our lives. We believe that because the Holy Spirit is willing to speak to us, personally, that it is our highest duty to listen. It is then our immediate obligation to act in accordance with His will.

http://library.thinkquest.org/TQ0312848/quaker.htm
The Quaker religion, also called the Society of Friends, was started by George Fox. He thought that the only way to talk to God was through an inner spiritual faith. He believed that it was possible for everyone to talk directly with God. This belief challenged the authority of the Anglican church. He started the Quaker religion to practice what he believed. Many people became Quakers and started to follow Fox. Most Quakers thought fighting is wrong, and they thought that everyone was equal. Quakers would not take off their hats to other men. The English didn't like the Quakers and put many of them in jail. This is why the Quakers decided move to America.

When the Quakers moved to America, they still were not treated very nicely. They were still put in jail and were even hung. When William Penn came to settle in Pennsylvania, the Quakers were very happy because William Penn was a Quaker. They thought that this would be a new and happier life for them. The Quakers did prosper. They worked hard, and soon controlled most of Pennsylvania.

Puritans
Many people were critical of the Anglican Church and formed their own religious organizations. One of the most important groups of religious dissenters The Puritans and the Anglicans were the two dominant religious groups in England in the mid-1600s, when George Fox was a young man. While Fox shared the Puritan’s criticisms of the Anglican Church, he was skeptical of many aspects of Puritan theology, particularly their belief in the Doctrine of the Elect.
The Society of Friends
George Fox is buried in London. In keeping with Quaker beliefs in plainness and modesty, his grave has only a simple marker. Image source About the photograph Fox began a spiritual journey that would last him four years. He read religious books and spoke to religious leaders in the Anglican Church and in Puritan congregations. After several years, he came to the conclusion that none of the existing churches reflected the true teachings of Jesus. He believed that the answers to his spiritual questions could not be found in books, nor could educated men tell him the will of God. The truth was already inside of him, because the Spirit of God was in each person.

As Quakers, we believe that we all can have direct experience of God. In our Meetings for Worship we meet with God in an un-programmed quiet time and in the vocal contributions of others. Worship is part of our daily lives. We make no distinction between the sacred and the secular as we try to live our convictions in the every day.

Quote:
"A Friend's meeting, however silent, is at the very lowest a witness that worship is something other and deeper than words, and that it is to the unseen and eternal things that we desire to give the first place in our lives. And when the meeting...is awake and looking upwards, there is much more in it than this. In the united stillness of a truly 'gathered' meeting, there is a power known only by experience, and mysterious even when most familiar." Caroline Stephen, (1908).
Most faith groups have specific beliefs that their membership is expected to follow. Sometimes, as in the case of the Roman Catholic church, these requirements are numerous. The
