Explains how he formed the society of friends and subsequently founded the American Quaker Colony of Pennsylvania.
George Fox
USA History British History Second World War ... Email
George Fox was born in Fenny Drayton, Leicestershire, in 1624. Apprenticed to a Nottingham shoemaker, Fox developed strong opinions about religion. Fox rebelled against the state control of the Church of England and in 1643 began toured the country giving sermons where he argued that consecrated buildings and ordained ministers were irrelevant to the individual seeking God. Three years later Fox had a divine revelation that inspired him to preach a gospel of brotherly love.
Fox formed a group called the Friends of Truth. Later they became known as the Society of Friends . Fox's central dogma was that of the inner light, communicated directly to the individual soul by Christ.
After 1656 followers of Fox refused to attend Anglican services or pay tithes . This resulted in Fox being arrested. According to Fox's journal, Justice Bennet of Derby "was the first that called us Quakers, because I bade them tremble at the word of the Lord". Eventually members of the Society of Friends became known as

Just outside the main entrance to Longwood Gardens near Route 1 is the historic 1855 Longwood Meeting House, which now houses a Tourist Information Center (see Map ). The building was purchased in 1940 by Pierre du Pont and has belonged to Longwood ever since, but it was constructed 85 years earlier as a Quaker Meeting House. Its early years were turbulent and closely intertwined with the Religious Society of Friends and with the celebrated Underground Railroad. The Religious Society of Friends
George Fox established the Religious Society of Friends in mid 17th-century England. Through his own Christian soul searching, Fox made a radical discovery: God lives in and talks directly to everyone. It was apparent to Fox that something of the Divine is implanted in each human being. From this originated the Quaker phrase, "There is that of God in every person." This Spirit is also referred to as the "Light" or the "Inner Light." The term "Quaker" was first used by an English magistrate as one of contempt and derision. During a sentencing, George Fox bade the court to "tremble at the word of the Lord." The magistrate labeled Fox a "Quaker." The official name for the movement, however, is the Religious Society of Friends.

A translation cannot reproduce in English all the meaning of the original text. On finer points and on some surprisingly major points, significant differences exist between one translation and another. The English words chosen to translate the Hebrew or Greek are important reflections of the translator's perspective. By using several different translations of the Bible, it will quickly become apparent that translators are human. Bible study in which different translations are read sensitizes the members to how the choice of English words affects the meaning of the text. The translator's words point to the meaning of the original text, which in turn is an effort to point to truth as the author understood it. This is a liberating insight to many, and it may transform a reader's antagonism toward the text and enable the reader to approach the text in order to understand the underlying truth.

Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)
Meeting History:
Argenta Monthly Meeting was founded in 1952 by a small group of families leaving the United States for a place more suitable for raising their families than in the militaristic environment of the McCarthy era. Since its early beginnings as a small meeting its members were also part of a rural work cooperative. Over the years the meeting has gone through many changes as it has sought to be God-loving and committed to social justice. Some of the projects taken on have included the creation and the current oversight of the Argenta Friends Press, a small printing press currently employing several people in the community. The Meeting also founded the Argenta Friends School in 1959 and had oversight of the school until its closure in 1982. Currently, resident members of Argenta Meeting are an active part of the Argenta community. Other members of Argenta Meeting worship in Nelson under the name of the South Kootenay Worship Group. Argenta Meeting also consists of isolated Friends in the West and East Kootenays who meet four times a year at regional gatherings.

67. Joseph Lancaster
Was a member of the society of friends. Opened a small school and introduced the monitorial system. As a Quaker he was unwilling to inflict physical pain on his pupils. In 1803 he published his first pamphlet, Improvements in Education, which explained the teaching methods that he used at the school. (17781838)
Joseph Lancaster
USA History British History Second World War ... Email
Joseph Lancaster , the son of a shopkeeper, was born in Southwark, London , in 1778. As a boy Lancaster began to have religious visions that convinced him that he should become a missionary in the West Indies. At fourteen he left home and made his way to Bristol where he intended to catch a boat to Jamaica where he hoped "to teach the poor blacks the word of God." Unable to afford the fare, Lan caster found work in the city and soon afterwards joined the Society of Friends
Lancaster returned to London and at the age of twenty opened small school in Southwark. Outside Lancaster put up a notice that read "All who will may send their children and have them educated freely, and those who do not wish to have education for nothing may pay for it if they please." The school was extremely popular but as most of the children were unable to contribute money towards their schooling, Lancaster found it difficult to employ people to teach them. After reading a pamphlet written by Andrew Bell about his attempts to form a school in Madras, Lancaster decided to introduce the monitorial system. Under this system one master taught a select group of older pupils, the monitors, and these in turn taught the rest.

the orchestra orchestra biography conductors musicians ... links Society of Friends The Concertgebouw and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra are two artistic institutions by which the Dutch music society is known far beyond the country’s borders. And that is something to be proud of!
This fame, based on the quality of the programming and performance, demands a certain amount of care, because besides the subsidies, income from ticket sales and the absolutely essential sponsoring, both the building and the orchestra need additional support precisely for that little bit extra that makes such an enormous difference. And this is where the Society of Friends [Vriendenvereniging] comes in.
The Society of Friends of the Concertgebouw and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra supports the building and the orchestra in realising the highest artistic goals. It promotes the growth of musical culture in Amsterdam and vitalises interest in good music. The Society of Friends also promotes the interests of the building and orchestra wherever necessary.
The Society of Friends further aims to promote and strengthen contact between performing musicians and the public. This takes place during special Friends events such as the Friends Series, the Friends Circle and the series of interviews 'Friends meet ...'.

Society of Friends
Doctrines The Society of Friends has no set creed, liturgy or sacraments, but derives from the Protestant tradition of: a belief in salvation by faith, the trinity, a priesthood of all believers and scripture as the sole spiritual authority. Friends emphasise that true religion comes from a personal encounter with God and following Christian ideals in everyday life, and not through observing sacraments or ceremony. Their meetings originally consisted of silence until a person of either sex felt moved to speak. Today such meetings are known as "unprogrammed" and can be contrasted to the "programmed" meetings of some American Friends' groups which have a more formal service with hymns, prayers and a sermon. History
Friends traditionally demonstrated their spiritual concerns by a symbolic refusal to follow the ways of the world in matters such as dress and speech. By wearing plain clothes they showed a distinctive group identity which can also be seen in simple austerity of their meeting houses. Modern Friends, however, have generally abandoned their traditional forms of dress and speech. Adherents About 213,800 world-wide in 64 countries including 19,000 in Great Britain and Ireland and 109, 771 in the United States. (Whitaker, 1995, 427; World Almanac, 1995, 729)

Katharine Conway , the daughter of the Samuel Conway and Amy Curling, was born on 25th September, 1867. Her father was a Congregational parson in Ongar, Essex, but when Katharine was a child the family moved to Walthamstow. The Conways held progressive views and Katharine received an education equivalent to that of her brothers. After being educated at home by her mother until the age of ten, Katharine went to the Hackney Downs High School for Girls.
Amy Conway died in 1881 after giving birth to her seventh child. This was a devastating blow as Katharine was very close to her mother. The situation was made worse by her father's decision to remarry a woman that Katharine did not like.
At the age of nineteen, Katharine began her studies at Newnham College Cambridge . At university Katharine came under the influence of the militant feminist, Helen Gladstone. Katharine also met

Index of Reports
Mystery Worshipper: +Alguhas.
The church: Religious Society of Friends, Salisbury, England.
Denomination: Society of Friends (Quaker).
The building: An ordinary terraced house close to the city centre and the cathedral. The house was indistinguishable from the others in the street except for the large "Society of Friends Meeting House" notice in the front garden.
The neighborhood: It was raining, so the main objective was getting under cover rather than sightseeing. However, there was a nice park next to the car park and a fine view of Salisbury Cathedral as we were driving in.
The cast: Being a Society of Friends service, there was no leader.
What was the name of the service?
Meeting for Worship. How full was the building?
The meeting room (the ground floor front and back rooms in the house knocked together) had a total of 28 worshippers. This left a few seats empty, but not many. Did anyone welcome you personally?
One of the Friends greeted me at the door and made sure that I knew how the service was run. In the meeting room itself, there was no talking, although there were plenty of friendly smiles. Was your pew comfortable?
