Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)
Phoenix, Arizona 85020
Everyone is invited to come and share an hour of silent worship in the manner of Friends. Newcomers are especially welcome! First Day School is a great program for children.
Quakers gather together each Sunday in expectant silence, waiting upon God. They believe that there is that of God in everyone, and through quiet worship one is offered not only a sense of divine Presence and peace, but also guidance and continuing revelation. Thus, those present may occasionally rise and deliver a message to the Meeting. Sometimes the hour is completely silent, but it is not empty. The silence vibrates with God's presence, and with the love and unity among us. This worship is at the center of all Quaker practice and action, and has led to the Quaker testimonies for which Friends are best known: simplicity, peace, integrity, community, equality, and unity with nature. For more information about the Phoenix Friends and Quakers in general, please email Tom Haines at firstname.lastname@example.org.
