It is difficult to describe Quaker worship, but the best way to understand it is to experience it firsthand. Meetings can be held anywhere, at any time, although they are often on Sundays in Quaker Meeting Houses.
Our religious experience leads us to place a special value on truth, equality, simplicity and peace. These testimonies as they are known are lived rather than written. They lead Quakers to translate their faith into action by working locally and globally for social justice, to support peacemakers and care for the environment.
Three sayings of George Fox embody a Quaker understanding:
“There is that of God in everyone.”
“Christ has come to teach his people himself.”
“Let your lives speak.”
