"Quakerism is opposed to the statement of strong emotion.
Quakerism is also opposed to strong emotion." - Community stakeholder
Moved By the Spirit.
Passionately Confronting Racial Disparities.
The woman at the Quaker Meeting was noticeably upset while talking, and continued her speech for over ten minutes. In the midst of this woman speaking, another person stood up silently. Then, sensing her time was coming to a close, the very same woman addressed the room thus: “Does anyone hear me?” Another person replied, “We hear you, we hear you”. This person and the one who stood up while the woman was talking were performing an act called eldering, which is when a longstanding member of the community expresses their disapproval of somebody’s behavior.
