FOR Founded in europe

During the summer of 1914, an ecumenical conference of Christians who wanted to avert the impending war was held in Switzerland. Before the conference came to a close, war finally broke out and Henry Hodgkin, an English Quaker, and Friedrich Siegmund-Schulze, a German Lutheran, made a pledge of peace saying, “We are united in Christ and never at war.” Inspired by that pledge, about 130 Christians of all denominations gathered in Cambridge at the end of 1914. They set up the FOR, recording their general agreement in a statement known as “The Basis” of that first expression of the Fellowship, in Britain.
