400 years since the birth of George Fox (a founder of Quakerism)

This year Quakers are marking 400 years since the birth of George Fox. One of the founders of Quakerism.

‘A sincere and spirited follower of Christ, Fox challenged the unjust order of things, and led a life that continues to inspire us today.

‘George Fox was one of the founders of the group known today as Quakers. As a young man, he longed for a genuine faith, in contrast to the legalistic and institutional church he grew up in. He looked in vain for human help and studied the Bible so thoroughly that he learned much of it by memory. After years of searching, he found inner peace by experiencing the inward Light of Christ which he recognised as his guide. As Fox shared what he had found, others responded and joined, and a Spirit-led movement of Christian renewal was born. They called themselves the Children of the Light, and later the Religious Society of Friends.’
