Paying for War

Dear Friends,

Can we continue praying for peace while paying for war? My wife Jan and I have been war tax resisters since the Vietnam War. We cannot in conscience pay for killing people in other parts of the world. We believe all people are children of God and we see all people as our brothers and sisters.

Rekindling the Fire

Looking towards the future of Quakerism, we see that the power to rekindle our fire for social justice lies within our local meetings. Supporting individuals to pursue the spirit’s leadings to work for peace and social justice will strengthen the Religious Society of Friends overall and connect us back to our historical roots.
