If we consider the spiritual message of the Society of Friends apart from its social message we must realize that ‘spiritual’ and ‘social’ are as intimately related as the two sides of a door; you can’t have one without the other…”
Howard Brinton

This brief tract emphasizes spirituality for the Quaker as something experienced both in relation to God and to other people. Brinton explains that while the Friends’ beliefs may seem individualistic, there is in fact a focus on the entire group’s insight. Spirituality in religion is seen as essentially “a genuine expression of an inward state.” The contemplative form of most Quaker meetings encourages authenticity and sincerity.
