Welcome to Durango Friends Meeting
How Quakers Worship
The heart of the Religious Society of Friends is the meeting for worship. It calls for us to offer ourselves, body, mind, and soul, to wait in active anticipation for the revelation of the Spirit. It is in silence that we still our hearts and minds so that the Spirit of God may enter. This silencing, this waiting in expectancy, this listening for that which is deepest within—this is what Friends call worship. We seek a gathered stillness in our meetings for worship so that all may feel the power of God’s love leading us and drawing us together. (from IMYM Faith and Practice Advices on Worship)
As we settle into Meeting for Worship, the quiet gradually becomes vital and alive. Worshippers may be moved by the Spirit to speak; such spiritual messages need not be lengthy or polished. There should be a time of quiet between messages for allowing people to find their own spiritual meaning in what has just been shared.
Worshiping with Us the First Time
You will be greeted at the front door and have the chance to ask questions. At 9:30 am, about twenty people will join in unprogrammed worship. At the end of an hour, we form a circle for announcements, introductions and an opportunity to visit informally.
