The Quaker Basics series focuses on topics at the core of Quaker faith & practice, and especially welcomes those who are new to Quakerism, as well as longtime attendees who wish to reflect with a beginner’s mind. These are offered monthly by Friends Meeting at Cambridge.
In the first hour, you’ll hear some basic Quaker concepts, then hear a panel of Friends share personal reflections. Then, we’ll have 30 minutes of participatory discussion to close out the evening. To participate in the full event, register via Zoom; you may also watch the first hour via Facebook Live video.
All perspectives and questions are welcome!

ABOUT QUAKER MEETING FOR WORSHIP:
Quaker Meeting for Worship is rooted in silence, but the silence is not emptiness—rather, Friends gather in expectant waiting. We believe that there is “that of God” in all people, through Meeting for Worship, make space to encounter it. Anyone at a Quaker meeting might be led to speak; ministry and encounters with Spirit may also occur in silence.
