Quaker Testimonies

Public ContentAnyone can view this post

Quaker Testimonies are ways Quakers have
found to live and act based on our beliefs. As
a group we find that listening to and following
leadings of the Spirit leads to:

Integrity - living as whole people who act on
what we believe, tell the truth, and do what
we say we will do.

Simplicity - focusing on what is truly important
and letting other things fall away.

Equality - treating everyone, everywhere, as
equally precious to God, recognizing that
everyone has gifts to share.

Community - supporting one another in our
faith journeys and in times of joy and sorrow;
sharing with and caring for each other.

Peace - seeking justice and healing for all
people; taking away the causes of war in
the ways we live.

Stewardship - taking care of the earth's
resources and human wealth—not just for
ourselves, but for people around us and for
future generations.
