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....
