One Paragraph

On both sides of the Atlantic the role of the dissenter long remained hard. Take George Fox, founder of the Quakers.. the Quakers worshiped without clergy in plain steeple-less meeting houses. Sitting thoughtfully, one might rise to speak from the heart of mind, then another, then all would listen to the inner voice. In 1681 the Quakers found a New World home in Penn's Woods-- Pennsylvania-- named for their patron William Penn, Fox's most illustrious disciple. (375:2)
