Spirit of Worship by Carol

Early on October 4th David and I drove up to the Ozarks in time to join Zoom worship from our cabin.

How easily we sat still with quiet focus, how deeply we had felt the Spirit.

Seven of us gathered to watch Episode 2 of Facing Race, which focuses on conversations about race. After each segment, we paused to talk, and we found we had no problem extending the 30-minute program to an hour-and-a-half format. People noted the care the series takes to reflect lots of very different voices. One segment in particular led us to query ourselves if there are Quaker practices or disciplines that might be useful in today's conversations about race.
