The Faithful Meetings program provides Quaker meetings, churches, and worship groups with opportunities to explore the question of what it means to be a community of Friends today.
Over the course of nine months, through in-person and online engagements, Friends will be given openings to examine many aspects of Quaker faith and practices together. Through worship, worship sharing, activities, and discussions, Friends will ponder their spiritual experiences, struggles, and beliefs with one another. Each meeting community will be invited to co-create a space where spiritual and emotional intimacy can thrive, where differences are welcome as a broader spectrum of Light, and where unity is experienced not as conformity but as a communal connection with the “more.” It is in this space that Friends may learn to trust themselves, trust one another, and most importantly, trust the Divine to know and guide them.
