Quakers share a common faith, based on experience, that every human being can commune with God directly, without the need for any mediating persons or rituals, and that the worshiping community can commune directly with God, as well.

Local Meetings Respond — Mondays at 7 p.m.

Topic for 5/25/2020: Meeting for Grieving - facilitated by ARCH Local Coordinators

This Monday’s Local Meetings Respond call will be a Meeting for Grieving. Northside Friends Meeting in Chicago, IL, recently sent out a call to hold Memorial Day as a Day of Mourning. They invite you to share your burdens with your loved ones and the communities from which you draw comfort and strength. Northside Friends also invites you to join in a visible action: At sundown wherever you live, light a candle and step outside and hold a moment of silence for what we have lost together. Monday night’s Meeting for Grieving will provide space for the sharing of losses and holding each other in the Light.
