< About Quakers
Over the years Quakers have witnessed to their experience of truth by trying to put their faith into practice. This has meant striving for truthfulness and integrity at all times.
Also, Quakers try to live in a way which recognises that there is 'something of God' in everyone. Accepting this basic equality means striving for fairness and human rights.
Living simply is another Quaker value, as a way of avoiding being distracted from what really matters in life.
And for Quakers the Christian message to love one another means working towards a peaceful co-existence and the avoidance of armed conflict.
"Creeds are milestones, doctrines are interpretations: Truth, as George Fox was continually asserting, a seed with the power of growth, not a fixed crystal, be its facets never so beautiful."
