You are welcome to join us as you are. Dress as you feel comfortable. We believe that every person is loved by the Divine Spirit. There are Quakers of all ages, races, education levels, sexual orientations, gender identities, religious backgrounds, and classes.
Our time together looks like:
- Sitting quietly together
- Listening if someone is moved by the Spirit to speak
- Shaking hands when worship ends, and greeting those around us
Please feel free to ask the person who ends meeting any questions you might have after Worship.
We are a Worship Group of the Religious Society of Friends. We are referred to as either “Quakers,” or “Friends.” We are affiliated with Palm Beach Friends Meeting and Southeastern Yearly Meeting.
Meeting for Worship
Worship begins when we are seated and quiet. No clergyman or minister presides and there is no set form or program.
The Meeting for Worship is based on silence broken only by brief messages from those who feel moved to share with the meeting the inspiration and knowledge of the will of God that rises out of meditation and prayer. In the practice of silent waiting we find our spirits come more easily into fellowship with the Divine Spirit. As we wait in silence we become conscious also of fellowship with other worshipers. Every individual participation enriches the fellowship whether the person is silent or speaks.
The meeting closes with the shaking or holding of hands.
