To be a Quaker is to live one's life in a certain way, rather than follow any dogma or creed. This rests on the conviction that, by looking into their innermost hearts, people can have direct communion with their creator. So, in meetings for worship, Quakers wait together, largely in silence. Occasionally someone may speak briefly when moved by the spirit.
Quakers tend to live simply; they do not condone discrimination; they aim for non-violent solutions to conflict; they have been prominent in work for disadvantaged people at home and abroad.
It is fundamental to the Quaker way to try to be open to new insights from whatever source, to tolerate different beliefs and practices, and to work for reconciliation wherever there is strife.
