  • Title: Facts About Friends
    Descriptive info: Facts About Friends.. by Ted Hoare.. member of Australia Yearly Meeting.. Welcome to our Meeting.. This leaflet provides a brief introduction to the Religious Society of Friends and we hope it will stimulate requests for further information which is available in other publications.. Our Christian Background.. The origins of the Society are found in the seventeenth century in England, a time when many were questioning the established beliefs of the age.. George Fox (1625-1691) did not find answers to his questions in any of the churches of his day.. Out of his searching came the spiritual message which swept a large part of the country and which resulted in the formation of the Religious Society of Friends.. Friends witnessed to an Alternative Christianity quite distinct from the churches of the time.. As a result they were persecuted both by Cromwell's Puritan government and by the restored government of Charles II.. Fox did not intend to start a new sect.. He wanted to persuade the church to return to what it had been in the days of the Apostles.. He proclaimed the early preaching of Peter (Acts, chapter 2 and 3) that Jesus, who had been present in the flesh, had risen from the dead and was now come in the Spirit.. That Jesus acted in the hearts of his followers purifying and empowering them.. Pursuing Peter's teaching, Fox called for a radical, egalitarian, spirit-filled Christianity that would not be oppressive of people on account of race, sex, or class.. He maintained that the message of the early church had been lost when the church became institutionalized and believed that he, and others with him, could stand in exactly the same state as Apostles, with the same power to teach, to heal, and to prophesy that the Apostles had.. The Ministry of All Believers.. George Fox challenged the belief of the Roman Catholic and Episcopal churches in the necessity for, and the authority of, a hierarchical structure of Priests and Bishops.. He claimed that everyone was able to have a personal relationship with the living Jesus without having to depend on the intercessions of a Priest or Minister.. He taught that there is one, Jesus Christ, who can speak to each person's condition and the responsibility for ministry therefore rested upon all.. The Place of the Bible.. Friends hold that the words of the Bible should not be taken as the final revelation of God.. The Books had been written by men who were acting under the power of the Holy Spirit and it was necessary to read the words in the power of the same spirit and to listen to what the Spirit then spoke in your heart.. The words were active agents in the sense that, when read in the Spirit at the appropriate time, they would spring to life for the reader and take the reader forward on his or her spiritual journey.. The Light Within.. George Fox preached the Good News that we were all children of God and that, as children of God, we had inherited powers from God.. Each of us was given a measure of this power or light and in accordance with how we used it, so more would be given to us.. Jesus had possessed this power or light, without measure so that he became the Light and the Light within is Jesus Christ.. The Inner Voice.. Friends believe that if they wait silently upon God there will be times when God will speak to them in the heart.. The silent Meeting of Friends is therefore the sacrament of communion with God during which Friends lay themselves open to the leading of the Spirit.. George Fox often wrote about his ``openings'', meaning revelations and it has been the experience of Quakers over the centuries that ``openings'' will occur in the mind of that ``a way will open''.. Openings can come to individuals when they are alone or may come out of the silence of a gathered Meeting for Worship.. It is a perennial question  ...   be called upon.. The Inward/Outward Journey is the practical application of Jesus' summary of the Law: ``Love God and your neighbor as yourself.. ''.. It is the inward/outward process that has led Friends into pioneering social action such as reforms of prisons, schools and mental institutions, improving conditions of employment, supporting refugees and others in need, providing an ambulance service in wartime and examining the consequences of proposed legislation.. The Peace Testimony.. As a Peace Church, the Society of Friends has always played a leading part in opposing preparations for war.. The Peace Testimony, which is a very important Quaker principle, arose out of the belief in the in-dwelling Light or ``that of God'' in people.. If that of God was a reality within oneself it would be denying the inner Spirit to take up arms against another.. Quaker practice does not permit the overcoming of some persons by other persons but tends toward the integration of various points of view into a new and higher level, for they recognize the Light as a force which creates unity amongst all who respond to it or answer it in one another.. In appealing to the Light within another we also appeal to the Light within ourselves; as a result, we may find that the other is right and we are wrong.. The Light is a source of unity.. Force may create a superficial unity but it cannot provide organic unity.. Quaker Practices.. Over the years the practice of Quakerism has developed in different ways in different regions.. Members of the Society have been affected by varying influences such as the greater awareness of Eastern religions, the growth of psychology and the development of scientific knowledge.. Since the Society is non-creedal, the spectrum of belief held by Friends has widened and different opinions may be held in different places or cultures.. When one considers the diversity in other denominations, the differences between Friends are less remarkable.. Friends Meetings may be either unprogrammed or programmed, the latter normally being led by a pastor.. Friends and other Faiths.. Quakers have always taught that the Light of Christ has been given to all people everywhere.. They maintained that many persons who never heard the historic Christ have had experiential knowledge of the Christ within and would hold, with Paul, that the Eternal Christ was known before the historic Christ.. However, Friends are prepared to receive insights from wheresoever they may come and agree that there are things to be learned from contact with other religions.. Friends are therefore ready to dialogue with people of other faiths and to share with them insights from our respective inheritances.. However, Quakerism remains rooted in the Christian faith and the centrality of Jesus is paramount, although his sovereignty is not unanimously upheld.. Summary.. The Religious Society of Friends is an Alternative Christianity which emphasizes the personal experience of God in one's life.. Quakers understand the necessity of first listening to God before working in the world.. They affirm the equality of all people before God regardless of race, station in life, or sex and this belief leads them into a range of social concerns.. Being "Children of Light" they find recourse to violence intolerable.. Quaker thought is both mystical (waiting upon God) and prophetic (speaking truth to power).. Friends believe that God's revelation is still continuing, that God is not absent or unknowable but that we can find God ourselves and establish a living relationship thus being able to live in the world free from the burden and guilt of sin.. It is the search for a closer relationship with God that is the Way.. Religious knowledge, like the appreciation of beauty, is not attained by a logical process of thought but by experience and feeling.. Quakers maintain that the teaching of Jesus is a practical method for the guidance of the world today, that religion is concerned with the whole of life, and that, beyond a certain point, definition becomes a limitation..

  • Title:
    Descriptive info: Most of the information below is from a commerative booklet published upon the occasion of the 150th Anniversary in 1938, of the construction of the present meeting house in Plainfield, New Jersey.. There is some updating taken from a single sheet pamphlet published for the 200th Anniversary in 1988 The name of the historian who researched and prepared these booklets is not noted.. though a present member, Charles A.. Varian remembers being involved in typing the 1938 booklet.. In order to preserve and disseminate this history, it has been keyed into this form by Alan Taplow, an current attender of the Plainfield Meeting.. Any errors noted should be brought to his attention: ataplow@bigfoot.. May 8, 1996.. The Plainfield, New Jersey Meeting House.. The Evolution of A Quaker Meeting.. Historical Sketch.. Before the Plainfield Meeting House was built in 1788, Quakers in this section of New Jersey met in "Amboy," now called Perth Amboy.. Their first organization meeting was held on the 13th of 8th month 1686, when "Friends at Amboy agreed to have a Monthly Meeting" and in a minute of their next meeting, held the 10th of 9th month 1686, the members were directed to "bring minutes of the births and burials since they first came into this place that they may be recorded.. " Amboy at the time of the organization was the seat of government in the Province of East Jersey.. The Deputy Governor, Gawen Laurie, a former London merchant, was a member of the Society of Friends, as were several of his official associates.. The first marriage recorded in the minutes of the Meeting was that of Miles Forster to the daughter of the Deputy Governor.. In 1704 the Meeting was transferred to Woodbridge where Friends met in the home of Nathaniel Fitz Randolph until they constructed a Meeting house there in 1713.. At a Monthly Meeting held at Woodbridge 9th month 16th, 1721, John Laing, one of the prominent members, asked permission to hold a meeting at his home in the Township of Piscataway, County of Middlesex, and not far from the boundary line of the present City of Plainfield.. This request was granted and carried into effect.. On land bequeathed to the society by John Laing, Friends obtained permission in 1731 to build a Meeting house not to exceed 24 feet square, which was called the "Plainfield Meeting.. " This was the immediate predecessor of the present Meeting House, although not on the same property.. For over 50 years the original "Plainfield Meeting House" met the needs of the Friends, but by 1787 a change seemed essential and in the Meeting held on the 15th of 11th month of that year the following minute appears: "The Friends appointed to endeavor to find a suitable place to build a Meeting House at Plainfield report that they all agreed that a lot of land containing three acres near the house of John Webster, the third, would be a suitable place for said house to be built on, and they propose that the size of the house should be about 34 x 48 feet.. " The Meeting agreed and the new house was first used for the Monthly Meeting held the 20th of 8th month, 1788.. The final report on the construction of the new Meeting House was made to the Meeting held on the 21st of 4th month, 1790, and stated "that the expenses of the house is four hundred and seventy four pounds, seven shillings and ten pence, exclusive of what stuff was got from the old Meeting House.. " The cost of the land and fencing was forty-seven pounds, fourteen shillings and three pence.. The committee that had charge of the construction of the house consisted of William Shotwell, Edward F.. Randolph, William Webster, Edward Moore, David Vail and Ambrose Copland.. When the present building was first occupied for Meeting purposes the Federal Constitution had been formulated in Convention only eleven months and George Washington was not yet elected first president of the United States.. It may be interesting and not entirely inappropriate to mention an incident which personally associates the erection of this house with a memorable event in national history.. During the Revolutionary War, when the British forces held possession of Perth Amboy and nearby country, General Washington and Staff called at the farm residence of John Vail, great, great, grandfather of Charles E.. Vail, the oldest member of the Meeting at the present time (1938), and requested to be guided to some prominent spot in the Watchung mountains from which he could get a good view of the plain below and the movements of the enemy.. There was a man at Friend Vail's house at the time who was acquainted with the mountain paths and he at once volunteered his services and led the Continental Commander to a high point which is now called Washington Rock.. That guide was Edward Fitz Randolph, a member of the committee in charge of building this Meeting House and who, as a carpenter, gave manual labor to its construction.. While the storms of over 200 years have beaten upon this venerable building, and yet, shingle-sided and wrought-nailed, with the exception of a portion of one end damaged by fire and repaired in 1873, and the substitution of slate in place of the shingle roof in 1922, it stands outwardly the same as of old.. Inside the massive timbers have become richly browned by the mellowing hand of time and clearly show the marks of implements used by the sturdy forefathers of 1788.. The benches, which were built by individual families from a common template still are in use, though with the addition of cushions which were not a part of the original plans.. Electric lights instead of the old oil lamps that swung from the beams, a furnace in place of the wood-burning stoves so long used, running water and modern plumbing are among the changes made within the building.. In 1955 the need for expansion was felt, this time for more classroom and nursery space.. A large portion of the old carriage sheds, older than the Meeting House since many of the timbers came for the earlier Meeting House on Woodland Avenue, was converted into a one-story building which now contains a nursery, a large subdivisible Sunday School room, a kitchen in place of cooking facilities on the balcony of the Meeting House, and a library in place of a closet containing books.. In 1988, a covered breezeway connecting the Meeting House to the School Wing was expanded to include new lavatory facilities.. A burial ground had been established behind the old carriage sheds.. The earliest extant dated stone bears the inscription "1815/H.. " there are reports that Friends and "some Indians" were buried earlier at the northern corner.. The burial ground is still in use.. The surrounding environment has changed greatly in 150 years.. Originally, the only house of worship in a small community of about 150 people, it now represents one of over 40 places of worship in a city with a population of over 40,000.. In 1836 a committee was appointed to confer with representatives of the railroad about the sale of land for a right of way which eventually was granted, the Meeting receiving $200 for the land.. Trains operated between Elizabethport and Plainfield in 1837 and eventually in 1852 as far as Philadelphia.. The railroad tracks were elevated in 1874 and for a period after the Friends seriously considered moving the Meeting House to a location that would be less disturbing.. No action was ever taken, however, and though the noise of chugging steam engines is now gone, the problem is one that still causes concern to visiting speakers who seek to talk above the noise of the trains.. The members of the Meeting have from time to time been active in community affairs, and have always been ready to allow the use of the Meeting House for deserving causes.. Friends took recognition of the 100th, 125th, 150th and 200th anniversaries of the construction of the Meeting House by holding suitable exercises.. The history herein presented was written in 1938, and is supplemented with materials from the 200th anniversary in 1988.. There is always the hope that the present generation will not lose the vision of the past, but rather that the members now living may find in the use of their Meeting House these qualities so fittingly set forth by Elizabeth Lloyd:.. "Our Fathers gathered here long years ago.. To hold communion with the power divine.. That is within, and over, and around:.. And as they were obedient to the Voice.. That spoke into their inmost souls,.. They found sweet peace and strength,.. Leaving behind a priceless heritage.. Of courage, patience, faithfulness and love.. This heritage is for us to enrich.. And magnify, not merely to enjoy;.. Oh, that we may be wise to know the right,.. And strong to do the work that lies  ...   length.. If such treatment failed to convince him and he still continued to hold negroes in slavery he was disowned from his Meeting.. Intellectually, friends admitted the enormity of owning or trading in slaves, as is evidenced by the minute from 5th month 1836: "The deeply interesting subject of slavery has been again spread before us, and greatly have we desired that we may be enabled to discover what there is for us to do while this great evil exists.. May we be willing to go into an individual examination in the light of truth what would be our feelings and how we should move, were the ties of endeared relatives and friends broken and they separated from us and doomed to perpetual toil and bondage.. Let us examine ourselves whether the peace of our minds would not be promoted by abstaining from the use of products of slave labor.. But emotionally they were not wholly free from race prejudice.. Instances are noted where there were rear benches for colored attenders at a Meeting.. "They usually sat in a special place against the wall, under the stairs or in the gallery.. " (Henry J.. Cadbury "Negro Membership in the Society of Friends.. ").. It was difficult for Negroes to become members.. There are rare cases of such colored members, but it took long periods of consideration and many referrings to superior meetings before such colored membership was consummated.. One such case appears in our own meeting, as noted in the report of the monthly meeting held the 20th of 4th month 1796, which reads, "They," referring to women Friends, "inform that Cynthia Miers, a mulatto woman had also requested to be joined in membership with Friends, but this being a case of a singular nature amongst us the meeting thinks it best to proceed very cautiously herein and therefore appoints to take the subject into their serious consideration and report at the next meeting, John Haydock and others.. It took about a year to turn this request into actual membership since the Monthly Meeting referred the matter to Quarterly Meeting which in turn referred it to Yearly Meeting.. The committee appointed by Yearly Meeting to consider this matter brought in the following report which was accepted.. "We are united in believing our Discipline already established relative to receiving persons into membership is not limited with respect to Nation or Colour" and it recommended that applicants for membership should be investigated as to their views and practices and when satisfied, Monthly Meetings "may in their freedom receive such with propriety without respect of persons or colour.. Cadbury, "Negro Membership in the Society of Friends.. Many of these conferences with superior Meetings developed the statements that there could no where be found any place in the Discipline against receiving a person into membership on account of his color.. So, intellectually, Friends have consistently testified to the propriety of such membership.. Later on in pre-civil war days when the abolition movement was at its height, disagreement among Friends as to their activity in this movement was very evident.. While in Revolutionary days members were disowned for refusing to free their slaves, in Civil War days they were disowned for their abolition activities.. One of our former members, Aaron M.. Powell in his "Reminiscences," dwells on this incongruity.. In speaking of the difficulty of finding suitable places in which to hold anti-slavery meetings he says: "I early had the cooperation of Joseph and Mary W.. Post and their family.. In their hospitable home.. I was welcome with a cordiality which in a period of general social ostracism for abolitionists, made it seem an oasis in a desert.. They also opened their house for my meetings at a time when the Friends Meeting House, strange to say, was closed against them.. Now in these present days of 1938 we are still a divided Society on our stand on Race Relations, but on the whole it seems as if fair dealing and right treatment were beginning to be the real concern of the Society.. The Race Relations Committees of the New York and Philadelphia Yearly Meetings are evidences of an awakening conscience and interest in justice and fair dealing to all races.. The younger members are accepting people at their true value, and where worth exists, honor it, whatever the color.. PLAINFIELD MEETING AND THE CAUSE OF TEMPERANCE.. The members of the monthly meeting were advised of the evils of intemperance as early as 1688 when they received through their Quarterly Meeting from the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting, held the "7th of ye 7th month, 1687" advising that "ye practice of selling rum and other strong liquors to the Indians directly or indirectly or changing rum or other strong liquors for any goods or merchandise to them, considering the abuse they make of it, is a thing contrary to ye mind of ye Lord.. " The Yearly Meeting requested that "this, our testimony, be entered in every Monthly Meeting book and every Friend belonging to their Monthly Meeting to subscribe the same.. " That the concern of Friends regarding the use of strong liquors was carried over into their own membership, is evidenced by the following minute of the Monthly Meeting held at Woodbridge the "16th of the 2nd month, 1741.. " "Whereas, Samuel.. being frequently very much in liquor.. for which he has been tenderly delt with and frequently admonished,.. but not withstanding he still persists in the same.. we disown him to be of our Christian Society.. " Disownments for the excessive use of strong liquors are found in the minutes for over 100 years, continuing until the Monthly Meeting apparently was clear of any members so inclined.. The associating of members with the liquor traffic was giving concern as early as 1810 when a committee was appointed to "labour with such of our members as are in the practice of distilling or trading in liquors or encouraging distillation by processing their fruit and cider.. " (Monthly Meeting at Rahway, 24th of 5th month 1810.. ) Three years later a committee report on the subject stated that "we do not know of more than one of our members that is in the practice of trading in distilled spirits.. " In 1815, a committee on the subject reported that the membership contained "one retailer and 17 who have disposed of their fruit for the purpose of distillation.. " In a report to the monthly Meeting on the 18th of 12th month, 1822, it was noted that "sixteen members have taken their fruit to the Distilleries.. but some have given us encouragement they would relinquish the practice.. A few are in the practice of using and handing it out to laborers as a common drink at particular times.. " This phase of liquor problem apparently was brought under satisfactory control shortly after the above date as no further reference is made to it.. Friends gradually accepted a total abstinence attitude regarding the use of alcoholic liquors and entered the field of liquor control by political means in the period when local option was a paramount issue.. In the minutes of the Monthly Meeting on the 12 of 1st month, 1897, the following "Memorial to the Plainfield Common Council" appears: "This Meeting respectfully and earnestly requests that in the exercise of the legal option rested in you, you will not renew of grant any licenses for the sale of intoxicating liquors for beverage purposes for the year 1897 within the municipality of Plainfield.. " During this period, Aaron M.. Powell, a member of the Meeting, was an active worker for the cause of temperance, often speaking before public gatherings.. In the report of the Philanthropic Labor Committee for the year ending 4th month, 1898, it was noted that "Aaron M.. Powell delivered an address at a temperance mass meeting held in Plainfield," and that "an opportunity for active temperance work having opened at the time of the Plainfield city election, by the decision of the Common Council to permit the people to take an informal vote on the question of 'License or No License,' our committee issued an 'Appeal to Voters,' one thousand copies of which were distributed.. The meeting continued to appeal to the City Council to refuse licenses until the 18th Amendment was made a part of the Constitution of the United States in 1918 and took up the work again in somewhat the same manner after the amendment was repealed.. In the Monthly Meeting held the 19th of 12th month, 1934, the Philanthropic Committee reported "that the members of the temperance section attended a public hearing of the City Council and spoke in favor of more strict requirements in the laws governing liquor licenses.. And so, for over 200 years at least some of the members of the Monthly Meeting have had a concern relative to the problem of temperance.. Just how this will be expressed in the future remains to be seen..
