Peace and Social Concerns

 
See New Post under Events & News: April 21th [Click Here]

Worship and witness are two pillars of Quaker spirituality. Worship in the Quaker tradition is fundamentally receptive and contemplative. Witness is active, testifying to the power of God to transform the human condition and seeking to engage the world to improve human society. At their best, each is rooted in the other: social action can be an expression of wor­ship, and worship can participate in remaking society.

For Friends, the experience of divine leading links the two. Our witness grows out of God's leading as encountered in contem­plative worship. Faithfulness to Leadings, in turn, enhances the experience of worship. Michael L. Beirkel; Silence and Witness – The Quaker Tradition, p.15.
