Quakers worldwide are best noted for their peace testimony. In 1947 the Religious Society of Friends was awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace for its humanitarian work during World War II. But peace begins with the small initiatives practised at our Dublin Meeting House in Eustace Street. Decisions at Meetings for Business are reached when those present corporately discern the will of God. The decision is then recorded by the Clerk of the Meeting.
- Friends try to live a life that takes away the occasion of violent conflict.
- Dublin Quakers at Eustace Street both as individuals and as groups work quietly in the background for reconciliation between individuals, groups and nations either on a professional basis or in a voluntary capacity.
- Friends in Dublin at Eustace Street hold that all war, or preparation for it, is inconsistent with the spirit and teaching of Christ.
