Let your life speak

In Quaker faith and practice, living is more important than doctrine. What we say and do reveals what we have come to un­derstand through living, through listening, and through making mistakes and reflecting on them.

This issue of Quaker Action includes many stories of people who act from the same principles that animate Quaker faith—people moved to heal wounded communities and create peace by living in a way that prefigures a peaceful world.
