This topic invites you to explore the Quaker experience of worship and silent waiting for an inward encounter. Shared worship is the foundation of the Friends’ experience of life as a spiritual community. We may worship or sit in silence alone, but we believe that in worshipping together we are opening ourselves to a more powerful experience. We are a mixed gathering of people from various backgrounds, and we are at many different places on our inward journey; however, all Friends aim to experience worship as a core element in their spiritual practice.
