But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

– Galatians 5:22–3 (KJV)

The Religious Society of Friends does not impose laws or rules for conduct upon its members. Instead, it lays upon us the responsibility to live by the Spirit of Light and Truth in each of us and provides Advices and Queries as an aid to faithfulness. This Spirit can direct every aspect of our lives if we open ourselves to it. It can enable us to reach out to the same Spirit in others. The fundamental emphasis of our personal lives should be the desire to fulfill God’s purpose.
