The Quaker tradition, also known as the Society of Friends, places the guidance of the Spirit as central to the Christian faith. George Fox founded the society in England in the 1600s. Simplicity and minimal use of ritual and objects distinguishes worship. Silence and waiting for spiritual insight are common practices. Active efforts for peace is a hallmark of the life of the Society. Respect for the creative power of God in every human being and in the world around is practiced.
