“I’m not sure [quiet worship] is my style . . . but I love everything else about Quakerism.” Although she hasn’t formally joined a meeting, Sabrina McCarthy has partnered with other women in the Friends community to create a BIPOC women’s group that meets online.
“What we do together is some worship sharing, some healing movement, some attention to cultural matters like music or art,” Sabrina explains. “In our normal interactions, even in Quaker meetings, there are little stings, little taps, little microaggressions some people call them—and to be able to relax and know you’re in a space where you’re understood is so important, and it allows you to expand spiritually.”
