Because truth is a constantly unfolding revelation Quakers have always attached great importance to the human search for knowledge, and to education in its widest sense.
Every Quaker Meeting is an experiment. Its worship is based on silence - not a passive silence, but a "waiting" on God, an endeavour to reach some small measure of unity with the Divine. In the silence anyone may speak, man or woman, young or old, member or non-member. Each of those present takes an active part in the Meeting, whether s/he speaks or remains silent.
From the belief in something of the Divine within everyone, and from this sense of personal responsibility in worship, springs the better known Quaker emphasis on relief work, international reconciliation, commercial integrity and social justice.
If you feel in sympathy with this approach to religion you may like to know more. There is a Meeting for Worship taking place in Calgary every Sunday. Everyone is welcome.
