Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Abingdon Friends Meeting

Abingdon Friends’ un-programmed Meeting is in the Spirit House of the ElderSpirit Community, located at 125 Elderspirit Court near the beginning of the Virginia Creeper Trail.

Meeting for Worship lasts about an hour and ends when those appointed either shake hands or the circle joins hands in token of conclusion.  There is a brief period of introductions if there are visitors, sharing, announcements and then dismissal.

EVERYONE is welcome to attend this Quaker Meeting for Worship.

In order for you to get a true "flavor" of how a Quaker Meeting worships it would be helpful to attend two or three Meetings, not necessarily in succession. 

Meeting Times

Meeting for Worship begins at 10:30 a.m. each First Day (Sunday)

What's New

We have just begun the study of this Pendle Hill Pamphlet, 399.  As expected it has stimulated much discussion regarding the interpretation of this chapter of Matthew.

It will help all of us to understand more about the Love of Jesus and that he spoke in metaphors and parables. Some of us have come from a background of you "live by the word and the word is literal" so this has opened those eyes to the reality that this is indeed metaphorical.

As we study together and open discussions many things come to light and are shared.  We look forward to this continued study.

Public

In the middle of last year, 2016 our meeting began thinking about and sitting with the idea of changing yearly meetings from Baltimore Yearly Meeting to Piedmont Friends Yearly Meeting.

The reason being that Baltimore and most of the activities and events around BYM are geographically so far away.

We are down in the far south west corner of Virginia and as an aging meeting it became increasingly difficult for us to participate with BYM.
