Quaker History and Beliefs - An Overview

The first video in the new Quaker Connection Video Series provides an overview of Quaker history and beliefs, including discussions on:

  • Early Quaker History,
  • Types of Quaker Meetings, and
  • Continuing Revelation 

Learn how Quakerism was founded and George Fox’s role in its inception. Learn about the light within and how each human being has access to a deep spiritual connection within them and the ability to have a direct relationship with God. Gain a better understanding of continuing revelation and how your truth today might not be your truth tomorrow based on new revelations. David and Jane talk about how Quakerism revolves around focusing on the present and who we are in the world today with our fellow human beings.

After watching the video, maybe you want to reflect on what you just heard and how it has meaning in your life. Perhaps you want to share it with friends and have a discussion. Reflection questions are available online. Here are just a couple:

  • Why do you think it is important for people who live work and govern in Quaker organizations to understand where the values originate?
  • What are your values and how do you live them in your everyday life?
