Post Quaker Quotes
Worship is the response of the human spirit to the presence of the divine and eternal, to the God who first seeks us. The sense of wonder and awe of the finite before the infinite leads naturally to thanksgiving and adoration.

Silent worship and the spoken word are both parts of Quaker ministry. The ministry of silence demands the faithful activity of every member in the meeting. As, together, we enter the depths of a living silence, the stillness of God, we find one another in 'the things that are eternal', upholding and strengthening one another.

Post Re: Quaker Quotes
Even though I am not a Quaker, I have grown up spiritually with services of silence. I have been visiting a church for almost fifty years that has a service for silent meditation or silent worship of God followed by a spiritual sermon. I am planning to establish a similar type of church in the near future.

In the profound silence of meditation one feels the joy of God in ones heart.

I ask for daily bread, but not for wealth, lest I forget the poor.

I ask for strength, but not for power, lest I despise the meek.

I ask for wisdom, but not for learning, lest I scorn the simple.

I ask for a clean name, but not for fame, lest I contemn the lowly.

I ask for peace of mind, but not for idle hours, lest I fail to hearken to the call of duty.

Inazo Nitobe, 1909

I am not saying that they are still involved in this companies but they were started by Quavers :- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Q ... _charities

Also many of the Unions were also started by them and they hand a hand in the UN.
