"Quakersim is not intended to be a refuge from the disturbing events of our times, but rather a source of strength and support in facing them. The relationships, decisions, and actions of our working lives should reflect a calling to the service of God. Our witness will be unconvincing unless we seek and heed Divine Guidance. Individual leadings vary with differences in talents and interests. Each Friend’s talents, however, should be fully used.” – BYM Faith and Practice
