Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Live Oak Friends Meeting

Religion isn't something to be added to over our other duties, and thus make our lives yet more complex.  The life with God is the center of life, and all else is remodeled and integrated by it.  It gives the singleness of the eye.  The most important thing is not to be pertetually passing cups of cold water to a thirsty world.  We can get so fearfully busy trying to carry out the second great commandment, 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself,' that we are under-developed in our devoted love to God.  But we must love God as well as neighbor.      Thomas Kelly

True godliness does not turn men and women  out of the world, but enables them to live better in it and excites their endeavors to mend it.        William Penn

Oh! How sweet and pleasant is it to the truly spiritual eye, to see several sorts of believers, several forms of Christians in the school of Christ, every one learning their own lesson, performing their own peculiar service, and knowing, owning, and loving one another in their several places, and different performances to their Master, to whom they are to give an account, and not to quarrel one with another about their different practices!  This is the true ground of love and unity, not that such a person walks and does just as I do, but because I feel the same Spirit of life in them, and that they walk in their rank, in their own ordeer, in their proper way and place of subjection to that.                             Isaac Pennington
