The Peace Testimony
The Peace Testimony is a principal tenet of the Religious Society of Friends. Friends have always worked to reconcile conflict and relieve the human suffering of war. While this good work must continue, Friends should also be working on measures to forestall future hostilities.
Friends are advised "to live in the virtue of that life and power that takes away the occasion of all wars."
We must work at prevention. We must eliminate or reduce those situations which lead to conflict.
