Since its founding, our movement has drawn ideas from secular and religious sources. One such source is the Religious Society of Friends & most members of this faith, also known as Quakers, are theists but — because they consider every person to possess a spark of the divine — pursue practices that can inform our own/ethical culturists’/ethical humanists’ approach to recognizing the inherent worth and dignity of every person. Longstanding ethical humanists Sue and Scott Walton have participated in Quaker meetings and conferences for many years and will share their observations and insights.
