Quaker Testimonies on the Plain Language Witness
Quaker Spirituality and the Use of Plain Speech
Elizabeth Gurney Fry, Quaker humanitarian (1780-1845)
I used to think and do now how little dress matters. But I find it almost impossible to keep to the principles of Friends without altering my dress and speech. . . . They appear to me a sort of protector to the principles of Christianity in the present state of the world.
THE Word of the Lord God to all Friends: Dwell in Peace and Unity with God, and one with another, that to the Lord ye may be a sweet Savour, and to one another, and also in them that hate the Light; that ye may all come to witness the Sonship, and to be Heirs of God, and in the Spirit have Unity, which is the Bond of Peace.
And the Seed of God, and the Life mind.
I am not Amish or Mennonite, but some people who come to my website are interested in knowing more about these groups. I can recommend these books as authoritative and relatively inexpensive sources of further information.
