Silent Worship: What To Expect
Worship begins in expectant silence, attentive to what Friends call the Inward Christ. There is no minister or priest. Sometimes a worshiper will rise and give a few minutes of spontaneous ministry: they might read out of a book of Quaker writings or the Bible, share a personal struggle they’re going through, or tell us of a recent a spiritual insight. Sometimes we have a lot messages and sometimes we go the entire worship in silence. No worship experience is ever the same!
We generally sit for an hour with about10-20 people in attendance. In the winter, the wood stove will be giving off a welcoming glow. You will know silent worship ends when the room exchanges handshakes and greetings (feel free to introduce yourself!). A few announcements are given; sometimes discussions spontaneously start. All are welcome! Stay for coffee afterwards. Once or twice a month we'll also have a potluck lunch.
