Quakerism is often described as ‘the quiet way’. This is because we sit in silence at our worship meetings. Nobody preaches or leads our meetings, and we refer to each other as Friends to create a less formal atmosphere, and to show that we are all equal. By congregating in silence, we help each other to be open to the spirit, or light, that is inside us all. Although no one preaches at our meetings, an individual may choose to speak, if they are guided to do so from within.
