Quaker

The message I posted resulted in several replies. Most of the suggestions didn’t fit all three criteria, but one wound up floating to the top: Quakers. I’ve been eyeing the Quakers for a while now, but the silent worship thing has put me off. I both really like words and the notion of just sitting with God for an hour is quite unsettling (which probably means it’s something I really ought to do). I did a spot of research and I was struck how neatly my three requirements lines up with three of the four Quaker Testimonies, which are Equality, Peace, Integrity, and Simplicity. The closest meeting house is an hour away, so I’ll have to wait until I get where I’m going to really try to get involved.

I really want to have a community both for sharing my own spirituality and to have a supportive home for the work I want to do. So I’m excited to see if maybe I can finally find a home.

    Hi Chris, It’s Jamie. I think Quakers sound like the most ultimate fit of what you’re looking for. And I’d consider the silent worship thing a challenge to yourself…if you like words, run them through your head, you know? It’s a pretty neat way of worshipping together but still being an individual with your own purposes. It’s something I experienced once or twice while I was in NC (I went to a Quaker college for a semester) and really liked it.

    Just thought I’d chime in. :P
