1. Introduction To "Quakers In Brief" - DM Murray-Rust
Overview of the Quaker movement from 1650 1990. Text complete with preface and table of contents. "quakers in BRIEF". or. "QUAKERISM made EASY"

My alternative title is adapted from that of a book on Calculus written by the eminent Quaker scientist, Silvanus Thompson, in 1910. It was called "Calculus made Easy" and was derived from lectures he gave to his Engineering students, whom he wished to interest in Mathematics as well as to instruct. He said that his learned critics would complain that he had made it easy simply by leaving out the difficult part; and he said "THAT THIS WAS QUITE TRUE". Still, he made no excuse about it for, as he said: "Any subject may be made repulsive by presenting it bristling with difficulties." This is true not only of Mathematics, but also of History, Theology, and much else... including Quakerism! So I propose to give you this "overview", leaving out the "difficult parts". In fact, I shall be leaving out a great deal, for there have been many good books written on the story and nature of Quakerism, to which anyone may refer, if they wish to read further and deeper.

3. The Quaker Corner: Differences Between Shakers And Quakers
This is a simplified, one page description of the background of Shakers and quakers, the latter being a thriving, worldwide Christian religion.
Subject: Shakers/Quakers
Encyclopedia of Religion Website?
Date: Sat, 7 Jun 1997 22:04:13 -0400 Does anyone have a good explanation of the difference between Shakers and Quakers? My daughter asked me to explain this, and I really don't feel comfortable giving her an answer. I was looking for a website that has a brief history/description of the world's religions and was very disappointed in what I found. Is there something like an Encyclopedia of Religions on the internet? Any suggestions would be helpful. While Shakers have nearly died out, Quakerism, though limited in numbers by comparison to mainline and evangelical Protestants, is alive and growing, both in the USA and in Africa and South America and other nations overseas. Many have today adopted the custom of having a person designated as primarily a pastor, and most are neither white English speaking nor North American, since the greatest growth in the past generation has been outside of England and the USA. This is a great abridgment and oversimplification of the histories of the two groups, Quakers and Shakers, but gives you an indication of the major differences. For a good short readable history of Quakers, I recommend to you Howard Brinton's *Friends for 300 Years*. I hope this helps thee.

Printable copy Brochure for the original exhibition in 2000 T HE Q UAKERS of the Greater Philadelphia region were pleased, in the summer of 2000, to welcome all who came to William Penn's City of Brotherly Love on the occasion of the Republican National Convention. Stimulated by this event, Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends produced an exhibition entitled "Quakers and the Political Process," which was on view until recently at the Arch Street Meetinghouse, 4th and Arch Streets, in the historic district of the City. With the assistance of local historian, Nancy Webster, and a dedicated committee, twelve large panels designed by Maltbie Associates describe Quaker contributions to American political life from the time of William Penn to the present, including panels on Quaker presidents Hoover and Nixon. Liberally illustrated, the exhibit's narrative text is complemented by a large number of quotations ranging from Quaker founder, George Fox, to Friends living today.

Click Here to Visit our Sponsors. document.writeln(""); Quaker congregations are almost completely autonomous. There exists no central general assembly or main authority within the Society of Friends that can make definitive statements of policy for the entire denomination. Instead, Quakers have regional "meetings" at which a group of congregations gather. Most Christians and Christian groups can be sorted into three categories: conservative, mainline and liberal. Quakers cover the full range. And this is displayed in their beliefs about homosexuality and bisexuality. The following are excerpts taken from their statements on the topic: British Quakers
In 1963, British Quakers published a book "Towards a Quaker View of Sex" . It put forth the argument that it was not the gender and sexual orientation of a person that mattered; it was the depth of feeling they have for each other. "Where there is a genuine tenderness, an openness to responsibility, and the seed of commitment, God is surely not shut out. Can we not say that God can enter any relationship in which there is a measure of selfless love?" Subsequently, the

Society of Friends (Quakers)
The official designation of an Anglo-American religious sect originally styling themselves "Children of Truth" and "Children of Light", but "in scorn by the world called Quakers". The founder of the sect, George Fox, son of a well-to-do weaver, was born at Fenny Drayton in Leicestershire, England, July, 1624. His parents, upright people and strict adherents of the established religion "revelations" . "I fasted much", he tells us in his Journal, "walked abroad in solitary places many days, and often took my Bible and sat in hollow trees and lonesome places until night came on; and frequently in the night walked mournfully about by myself. For I was a man of sorrows in the first working of the Lord in me." This anguish of spirit continued, with intermissions, for some years; and it is not surprising that the lonely youth read into his Bible all his own idiosyncrasies and limitations. Founding his opinions on isolated texts, he gradually evolved a system at variance with every existing form of Christianity . His central dogma was that of the "inner light", communicated directly to the individual soul by Christ "who enlightenth every man that cometh into the world". To walk in this light and obey the voice of
