At the heart of the Quaker way of knowing God is the experience of the Light, the divine inward illumination and guidance that was known by early Friends as the Light of Christ within. This is the Light referred to in John 1:9, The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world. Early Quakers urged everyone to become Children of the Light.

A delightful short YouTube video in the QuakerSpeak series shows nine contemporary Friends describing the Light and their experience of it.
