"Introducing Chicago area Quakers"
Remarks to Friends World Committee for Consultation,
Section of the Americas Annual meeting,
Illinois Beach State Park
Zion, Illinois, 3/18/00
by David H. Finke At the invitation of Chicago Metropolitan General Meeting of which I'm a member although I live in Missouri I've been asked to tell you something about us. In this time I cannot pretend to do a real "History" of Friends around here, and I call attention to a number of displays and books that may do that better. However, what I would like to do in the next 20-30 minutes is to share with you my own impressions of what I call "The Flavor" of Chicago-area Quakerism, by reference to its history and that expression through its Monthly Meetings. And in that, I think I have discerned a number of key themes which are very close to what is central in FWCC. Come on this survey with me through about a century and a half, and then learn more by visiting and worshipping with Friends from this area Don't just take my word for these conclusions. Although we know there were scattered Quakers living in Chicago as early as 1852, our story as a Society of Friends begins in 1864, and by the initiative not of Chicagoans

    There is a wide range of theological views held by Quakers as they seek clarity, but the following Testimonies are valued by Quakers around the world.
    Personal Relationships
    This area emphasises social equality and the need for us to accept every person individually, never regarding anyone solely as a member of a class or category. Friends oppose discrimination or orexploitationexploitation on the grounds of creed, race, sex, sexual orientation, mental or physical ability, age or social status.
    This includes the traditional Quaker concern for the relief of suffering due to famine, natural disasters and war. More recently concern for situations nearer at home have emerged, especially for homeless, disadvantaged or elderly people and those who are particularly vulnerable, such as political prisoners, those with AIDS and those who are addicted to drugs. Compassion for animals has led to opposition to factory farming and other forms of cruelty.

Deism and the Quakers
From John Punshon's Portrait in Grey: A Short History of the Quakers For more information on Quaker Beliefs, go to Chuck Fager's Quaker Theology Page Pages 158-167. "A Divided Inheritance" This discusses the different theological tendencies within Quakerism. Quakers have never formally adopted the "Trinity," but the three streams of Christian theology can be found in Quakerism.
  • Deism, the "doctrine that God is quite other than the cosmos and entirely transcends it. Having created it as a closed system, he remains aloof from its operations and lets it go its own way" (160). This is God the creator, the "father." People who adhere to this theology tend to stress rational thought and science as a way of discovering truth, they tend to also place great emphasis on classic religious texts. Orthodox Quakerism is more sympathetic to Deism. For deists "the light was the inherent rational capacity of the mind." (161)
  • Evangelical, the focus on Christ as the unique Son of God, the Redeemer who died for our sins. People are sinners who can be saved only by accepting Jesus as their Savior. This approach tends to stress charismatic leadership, strong emotional appeals and adherence to doctrine. At certain points, this has been strong in Quakerism, and it is stronger among Friends with Pastoral form of worship.
  • Pantheist, the "the view that God and the universe are one entity, and that the divine is wholly immanent in the creation." (160). This is God as Spirit, as Holy Ghost, as Sanctifier. Silent and unprogrammed worship is most compatible with this theology, since it facilitates awareness of the spiritual dimensions of reality. It also leads to Universalism (as we define it, the belief that all religions are means to approach a the same spiritual reality) since many other faiths also practice this form of spiritual worship, e.g., Buddhism, Hinduism. Gandhi's book "All Religions Are True" is consistent with this philosophy. Pantheist Quakers view the "light [as] the direct operation of God upon the soul, something which the deist cosmology in principle refused to admit." (161).

    International Quaker Working Party on the Israel-Palestine Conflict
    Epistle to Friends Jerusalem, 30 June 2002 The International Quaker Working Party on the Israel-Palestine Conflict is composed of members of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) along with Jewish and Muslim members who have traveled together to Israel, the occupied Palestinian territories, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, and Egypt from 11 to 30 June 2002. We set out on this journey under a strong concern for the breakdown of the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, the rise in the level of violence, and the suffering being experienced by both peoples. Our own plans were significantly affected by Israel's closures and other administrative actions. Our travel and appointment schedules had to be altered or canceled repeatedly. We were unable to enter Ramallah, which was under curfew, to be with Quakers who live there. We felt this frustration and pain very directly through the experience of our Palestinian Quaker colleague, Jean Zaru, who was not permitted to travel with us much of the time, and had great difficulty in reaching her Ramallah home due to Israeli blockades and curfews. Despite the widespread tension and hardship, everywhere we went people from a variety of backgrounds, positions, and political persuasions received us with warm hospitality and candor. We experienced time and again a deep generosity of spirit, which is alive and well, if under severe threat, amongst the people caught up in this conflict.

    by Bill Samuel
    Originally published May 1, 1999 at

    One of the things probably best known about Quakers is that we have a testimony against participation in war, which we call the peace testimony . As the Quaker movement was developing, Christian bodies did not generally take a pacifist stance. Friends themselves took a little while to become clear about it as a movement. In the very early years of the movement in the mid-seventeenth century in Britain, some Friends served in Cromwell's army. As late as 1659, prominent Friend Isaac Penington wrote a paper To the Parliament, the Army, and all the Well-affected in the Nation, who have been faithful to the Good Old Cause , in which he said the army had been "glorious Instruments in the hand of God."
    Development of the Peace Testimony
    Although the peace testimony was not a clear testimony of the movement as a whole at first, it does seem to have been clear early on to George Fox, generally called the founder of Quakerism. In his
