The religious society of friends(Quakers)

Quakers are another Christian denomination and are best known for their pacifist principles and their silent and spontaneous worship. Founded by George Fox in the 17th century CE. Friends believe that there is a Divine Light present in every person and in their worship they wait for the Holy Spirit to prompt them to speak or read or say a prayer. The movement has no leadership locally or centrally but staff are employed to carry out social service or peacemaking work. Quakers do not practise either baptism or Holy Communion. Quakers are also pacifists.
