Curious About Quakers and the Quaker Experience?

Below is a playlist of videos produced by QuakerSpeak, a project of the Quaker publication Friends Journal .  Each of these five videos provide perspective on the nature of Quaker worship. The titles include:

What to Expect in a Quaker Meeting for Worship; Quaker Meeting for Worship Part 1: The Challenge of Sitting in Silence; Quaker Meeting for Worship Part 2: Giving Vocal Ministry; Quaker Meeting for Worship Part 3: The Gathered Meeting; What do Quakers Do in Silent Worship?

 


Opinions and ideas expressed in these videos represent the diversity of experience and outlook within the Quaker community and may not necessarily reflect views of the Durango Friends Meeting or its members and attenders.

Currently of Fresh Pond Meeting in Cambridge, MA., Callid’s life experience and ministry have provided rich seasoning on the topic of leadings—nurturing his own under the care of his monthly meeting and caring for the leadings of other Friends in the care of monthly meetings he attends.

The 2016 annual gathering of the Intermountain Yearly Meeting will take place at Ghost Ranch, New Mexico June 5th - June 12th. This year's theme is Nurturing Spiritual Gifts and Ministry in Our Meetings.
