Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice
A Spiritual Fellowship Where Everyone Is Welcome

Clearwater Friends Meeting

Clearwater Friends Meeting is an “unprogrammed” Monthly Meeting associated with the Southeastern Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends and Friends General Conference

Our weekly Meeting for Worship is held each First Day (Sunday)

at the Scottish American Society Hall 917 Louden Avenue, Dunedin, Florida 34698

 Directions:  From Mease Hospital and the intersection with SR 580, follow Main Street towards downtown Dunedin for ¼ mile.  Louden Avenue is on the right.

Our Meeting accepts that not everyone has the same journey of faith, and that each of us may express our spiritual beliefs in different ways. You will find no written dogma, nor will you be asked to recite a prayer or sing a hymn that expresses someone else's belief. We strive to listen to the "still small voice within" for guidance in all our meetings.   

Quaker Meeting for Worship is a vibrant silence of waiting in expectancy. The silence is not an emptiness crying out to be filled, but a disciplined and contemplative openness to the Spirit of God. Our practice is to listen attentively to the harmony of the silent waiting and to the ministry that may arise from the silence. 

We value the testimonies of simplicity, peace, integrity, community and equality. 

 

The first step to peace is to stand still in the Light....

George Fox, 1653

LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF

You might have felt it. The hateful rhetoric of candidates in this election year affects us all, fostering a climate of fear. We believe that we can and must call out the irresponsible language that demonizes people of particular faiths and backgrounds. To shift the narrative, FCNL is launching #LoveThyNeighbor to encourage positive rhetoric and highlight the value we place on one another. Please join us and show the power of love to overcome fear and hatred.

Here's how you can participate:

Worship sharing focuses on a particular question and helps us to explore our own experience and share with each other more deeply than we would in normal conversation.

Early this year, as we discussed the delightful time we had at Christmas while preparing Christmas gifts for a chosen family in need, a member raised a concern about how to do this giving with even more care and consideration next year. We agreed to let this concern season and reconsider our approach to giving several months before Christmas 2016. To further this conversation, we can refer to an article in Christianity Today based on a November 11, 2015 interview with the writer Robert Lupton conducted by Bethany Hoang.
