2. The Quaker Corner: Differences Between Shakers And Quakers
This is a simplified, one page description of the background of Shakers and quakers, the latter being a thriving, worldwide Christian religion.
Subject: Shakers/Quakers
Encyclopedia of Religion Website?
Date: Sat, 7 Jun 1997 22:04:13 -0400 Does anyone have a good explanation of the difference between Shakers and Quakers? My daughter asked me to explain this, and I really don't feel comfortable giving her an answer. I was looking for a website that has a brief history/description of the world's religions and was very disappointed in what I found. Is there something like an Encyclopedia of Religions on the internet? Any suggestions would be helpful. While Shakers have nearly died out, Quakerism, though limited in numbers by comparison to mainline and evangelical Protestants, is alive and growing, both in the USA and in Africa and South America and other nations overseas. Many have today adopted the custom of having a person designated as primarily a pastor, and most are neither white English speaking nor North American, since the greatest growth in the past generation has been outside of England and the USA. This is a great abridgment and oversimplification of the histories of the two groups, Quakers and Shakers, but gives you an indication of the major differences. For a good short readable history of Quakers, I recommend to you Howard Brinton's *Friends for 300 Years*. I hope this helps thee.

3. Introduction To "Quakers In Brief" - DM Murray-Rust
Overview of the Quaker movement from 1650 to 1990; British focus.

My alternative title is adapted from that of a book on Calculus written by the eminent Quaker scientist, Silvanus Thompson, in 1910. It was called "Calculus made Easy" and was derived from lectures he gave to his Engineering students, whom he wished to interest in Mathematics as well as to instruct. He said that his learned critics would complain that he had made it easy simply by leaving out the difficult part; and he said "THAT THIS WAS QUITE TRUE". Still, he made no excuse about it for, as he said: "Any subject may be made repulsive by presenting it bristling with difficulties." This is true not only of Mathematics, but also of History, Theology, and much else... including Quakerism! So I propose to give you this "overview", leaving out the "difficult parts". In fact, I shall be leaving out a great deal, for there have been many good books written on the story and nature of Quakerism, to which anyone may refer, if they wish to read further and deeper.
Chapter 1. When, Why, and How Quakerism began.

Excerpts taken from statements on the topics of homosexuality and bisexuality, and related resources.

Click Here to Visit our Sponsors. Quaker congregations are almost completely autonomous. There exists no central general assembly or main authority within the Society of Friends that can make definitive statements of policy for the entire denomination. Instead, Quakers have regional "meetings" at which a group of congregations gather. Most Christians and Christian groups can be sorted into three categories: conservative, mainline and liberal. Quakers cover the full range. And this is displayed in their beliefs about homosexuality and bisexuality. The following are excerpts taken from their statements on the topic: British Quakers
In 1963, British Quakers published a book "Towards a Quaker View of Sex" . It put forth the argument that it was not the gender and sexual orientation of a person that mattered; it was the depth of feeling they have for each other. "Where there is a genuine tenderness, an openness to responsibility, and the seed of commitment, God is surely not shut out. Can we not say that God can enter any relationship in which there is a measure of selfless love?" Subsequently, the

6. Quakers Reunited
A service to help people find others who were at the same Quaker gatherings.

"Marriage has always been regarded by Friends as a religious commitment rather than a merely civil contract. Both partners should offer with God's help an intention to cherish one another for life. Remember that happiness depends on an understanding and steadfast love on both sides. In times of difficulty remind yourself of the value of prayer, of perseverance and of a sense of humour."
How many Quaker Gatherings have you been to ? If you're anything like us, the answer is no doubt going to be "lots" ! Whether they're New Year Gatherings, Summer Gatherings, FWCC Triennials, Youth Pilgrimages, Senior Conferences, Junior Yearly Meetings, or World Gatherings, the list just grows & grows. There'll be many people you were at gatherings with who have become lifelong friends. Others you might have kept in touch with but lost contact somehow since. One day you get your photographs out to show somebody else, recognise a face, & the thought "I wonder what they're doing now...?" floats across your mind. 'Quakers Reunited' is for you ! Based on the idea of the popular schoolfriends reunion format, you can
