George and Margaret Fox and the Quakers

George Fox (1624-1691) was the founder of the Religious Society of Friends, commonly known as Quakers or Friends. He was married to Margaret Fell Fox (1614-1702), a fellow contemplative activist.

One of Fox’s enduring contributions to Christian contemplative tradition was his insistence throughout his life that contemplation and activism compliment one another and are an integrated whole. Another enduring contribution of Fox is the idea that the deepest kind of worship is silent. Sacred silence draws us into communion with Christ and has a profound transformative quality.

Silent meetings for worship or “waiting worship” were the nexus of all Quaker activism. Fox taught that there is a “Seed of Christ” in all of us. And that through consistent individual and collective silences, this Seed will grow, eventually transforming us into our true selves and calling us to our life’s mission.

Life Lessons from a Bad Quaker: A Humble Stumble Toward Simplicity and Grace by J. Brent Bill

Holy Silence: The Quaker Way by J. Brent Bill:  Quaker silence is not about stillness, as such, but rather about encountering God in a living and vital holy hush. This e-course encourages women and men to undertake a journey of spiritual silence. The destination is a quiet inner place where God teaches us directly. Friends (as Quakers are formally known) have been honing their take on silence for more than 350 years. It’s a silence that invites us to an immediate and personal encounter with God. That’s because Quakers believe that when we are silent, then the Spirit of God grants us insights, guidance, and understanding of spiritual truth.
