    There are many kinds of Quakers: Liberal, Conservative, Evangelical, Programmed, Unprogrammed... I don't know much about the Plain Dress Quakers; I think they're mostly in the Midwest. Generally, most Quakers dress like everyone else. Hope this helps.

    Hello, I am also new to the group. Like Sigurdur, I took the Belief-o-matic quiz and got a strong correlation to the Quaker faith. As I no longer find that the faith I was raised in answers my needs, I am open to exploring here and learning if Quakerism is a better fit. Peace to all lilcuriouscatt

    Hello. My mother died 3 days ago. We were not close, but now we never will be. In trying to celebrate her life I was doing some genealogy and found out that her family were Quakers back to the mid 1800's. She was raised in western NJ as a Holiness-Friend. When I knew her she had lost her way spiritually and so I never knew anything about her religion. I am lost spiritually myself. Been a hard year for me so far. My health is failing, finances are dim, I turned 50 and lost my mother. I feel very alone and bleak. I guess I am a Seeker. So where do I start?

    Hi, My name is Tom and I am new to Quakerism. I have been an attendy at a local meeting house for the past 5 weeks. The meeting is unprogrammed which I like a lot. I come from a Zen Buddhist tradition and feel more at home with the Quakers and their faith and beliefs. The meetings are silent for one hour of communal silent prayer, expectant waiting for the presence of God to speak in the still small voice. I am very fond of the community and may join one day.
