Welcome to Monterey Peninsula Friends Meeting

The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)

About Monterey Peninsula Friends Meeting:


Friends  (Quakers) are people of differing backgrounds, with the common  understanding that all people are on a spiritual journey.  Friends have no single creed or outward sacraments or symbols.  We believe that within each person there  is a divine spark, or "that of God," leading us to oppose everything  that diminishes life:  war, violence, oppression, injustice, and  excesses of all kinds.  We hold that killing another human being would  be an act against that of God in him or her.

     Despite our diversity, Friends find that we can live in accordance with  our common values. When we do, our values become our testimonies, or  witness, to the world. Friends testimonies on peace, equality,  simplicity, integrity, truth, community, and diversity have evolved over  time and are the outward expressions of Friends' attempts to turn our  idealism into action.

     We make no distinction between the sacred and the secular as we try to  live out our beliefs through our daily activities and behavior.  We  support and sponsor such organizations as the American Friends Service  Committee, the Friends Committee on Legislation/California, and the  Friends Committee on National Legislation.
