In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program
A religious awakening which does not awaken the sleeper to love has roused him in vain. — Jessamyn West, novelist, in The Quaker Reader, 1962
The Religious Society of Friends, commonly known as Quakers, is small in numbers—less than half the size of Unitarian Universalism, with only 300,000 adherents worldwide. Religious soul mates of Unitarian Universalists in many ways, Quakers have had a far-reaching social and political impact, as well as an influence on our own faith, through their commitment to peace, equality, justice, and humanitarian work.
There may well be someone in your congregation who identifies as Quaker who could meet with the group. Visiting a Friends Meeting is an experience UU youth find both enjoyable and educational.
