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) 10:00 - 11:00 a.m.

Through August we will continue to meet 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

Inspired by "The Kindness Rocks Project" our young people and members of Meeting have been painting rocks. Here are the rules, according to the website at http://thekindnessrocksproject.com/

GOAL #1: INSPIRE OTHERS THROUGH RANDOMLY PLACED ROCKS ALONG THE WAY… 

GOAL #2: RECRUIT EVERY PERSON WHO STUMBLES UPON IT TO JOIN IN THE PURSUIT OF INSPIRING OTHERS THROUGH RANDOM ACTS OF KINDNESS

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.

As a Meeting we have been addressing the matter of Moral Injury. Now, a national publication embraces this critical conversation with an article by the writer Peter Van Buren. His article addressing Moral Injury in the Nation, May 2017, can be found at this web address: https://www.thenation.com/article/who-pays-the-moral-price-of-war/

Benjamin B. Ferencz is a Hungarian born American lawyer, who, at age 97, is the last Nuremberg prosecutor alive. He has a special message for the world in this May 7, 2017 interview on CBS 60 Minutes. "War," he says, "makes murderers of otherwise decent people." And for all those concerned with peace, he says, "It takes courage not to be discouraged."
