Middle School Teacher
Hannah Tupper is a Quaker. The Quakers did not believe that a minister was needed to lead a church. They believed that God was within everyone. At the meetings, which is what church services were called, the congregation sat on long benches that faced each other. When "the spirit moved" members, they would stand and speak their thoughts of a spiritual nature. Quakers are pacifists; they do not believe in warfare and violence as a solution to problems. In speaking, they use the pronouns "thee" and "thou" instead of you and your. Quakers believed in equality in all areas of life.
