Quakerism is a dual commitment to spiritual awareness and social action as a form of ministry. God still speaks to us and we must respond. We work towards peace, justice and reconciliation because we believe they are necessary to uphold our spiritual truths.  We are led to implement our concern for equal rights for all.
