Post Why do Quakers never sing.
I know there is no reason why a Quaker cannot sing in a service although the focus is mainly on silence.
I had to laugh when someone told me this joke.

Q. Why do Quakers never sing hymns?

A. Because each time they come to the second line they have to stop and consider whether they actually believe the words or not.



Sometimes asking questions instead of going along with the flow is important.

And other times a good song is just a good song.

It's why Lt Cmdr Data wanted to be human.

True. I know of a few singing Quakers. However, I can see where the joke got its content from.

Quakers meet in silence. They have no ministers. People are said to quake if they feel they are called upon to speak by the spirit during the meeting. No one says what you must believe. They have no creeds. They are strongly in to social issues, social fairness and community.

I didnt realise you had no minister. I'm not sure what I thought. I sort of expected you to go to a Quaker church and listen to a minister and pray. Shows how naive I am about religions and other peoples beliefs cultures and ways of life. A lot of what the Watford Quakers said is how I view friendship and religion especially it being personal to you. I shall certainly read more on the subject but right now I must go to bed for I have to be up early.
Thanks Pete
