In Short: There is a way of being wherein people become aware of or experience immanent self-sustained being inshining upon their consciousness and conscience. This experience or awareness of immanent being in itself becomes that which may gather people together. Faith is in the experience itself (as the fondation of consciousness and the informer of conscience) as mediator itself in itself to guide and inform their relationships and interactions. In this different way some gatherings (relatively speaking) forego outward mediations such a religious leaders, institutions, and ideological constructs or contrivances like community to guide and inform or order their relationships. Some people (relatively speaking) are drawn out of participation in and identification with outward forms altogether, such as established Meetings or Yearly Meetings or Churches and set times and places for worship. This is not to judge those who (relatively speaking) are drawn into outward mediated formalities to guide and inform their relationships; just to assert and affirm another way of spiritual experience.
