Quaker Culture: Guidance

Elders at Balby, The
On Rules (November 2020)
Quaker Culture

Dearly beloved Friends, these things we do not lay upon you as a rule or form to walk by; but that all, with a measure of the Light, which is pure and holy, may be guided: and so in the Light walking and abiding, these things may be fulfilled in the Spirit, not in the letter, for the letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life.

 – The Elders at Balby  (1656)
