Listening to the Light: How to Bring Quaker Simplicity and Integrity into Our Lives by Jim Pym. Section 3 B: Christianity, General Christianity. The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) have been around for over 350 years. They believe that the light of God is found in each person. They believe the spiritual and the secular are combined in daily life. They gather in silence with the intention of seeking the Divine Presence in worship. Some see it as an Inward Light, some as a Still Small Voice. In the introduction, the author introduces us to Quakers in history: George Fox, a founding Quaker, and William Penn, who founded Pennsylvania and Philadelphia according to Quaker principles.
In the chapter titled, “The Source,” Pym explains the concept of silent worship, where two or more people meet in silence, expecting to find God’s presence. People are allowed to get up and speak but this is not required. In the deep stillness of meeting, a profound unity can occur; this is called “gathering,” where there is a feeling of the reality of God’s presence, and where God meets their needs, both as individuals and as a community.
The chapter, “Personal Practice,” discusses meditation (inward listening and looking), and prayer, two practices many Quakers use in daily life. Spiritual reading, journaling, retreats, and bible study are also Quaker practices. Chapter 3, “Commitment,” discusses “testimonies, stances for which Quakers are well-known: equality, peace, nonviolence, simplicity and honesty. This has led Quakers to become conscientious objectors, and who affirm what they say is true in court, rather than swearing on the bible.
Other chapters include methods Quakers use in business meetings, meetings for clearness in moving forward, and how weddings and funerals are conducted.
As a native Pennsylvanian I grew up with Quaker friends and neighbors. I always found their simplicity, honesty and kindness created solid friendships. I liked the concept of an inner light, and listening for God to respond to our prayers and meditations. Perhaps reading this book will help us become better listeners – for God at worship and in our everyday lives and relationships, and also to better listen to those around us. So often we want to “put a last word in,” or we interrupt people before they have a chance to speak. Less speaking and more listening, more silence, fewer words – these might help us better discern what others really mean, and what God wants us to do. ( )

A short book explaining [British] Quakerism to the uninitiated. It reminded me again of all the aspects I concur with (eg the willingness to silently listen and think before speaking, or the aim at simplicity) to the point of considering this denomination the most palatable form of Christianity I've ever encountered - and of the aspects I disagree with (eg the hero worship of the Biblical deity) to the point of being unable to become a Quaker myself.
