Miami Friends Meeting
Welcome to Miami Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, known to most people as Quakers. Our faith and practices are based on the belief that every person has a divine spark, often called the Inner Light, which is available to guide us towards doing what is right. It is this basic belief that leads us to oppose war and to work actively for peace and justice.
In practice, we sit in silence in our meeting for worship until someone feels certain they have been given a divine message meant to be shared with everyone present. In a Friends meeting, there may be a wide range of ideas about the nature of divinity, names used, and sources of inspiration, including but not exclusively the Bible, the writings of George Fox, the man who started Quakerism, and other sacred texts and inspired contemporary writings.
This Firstday/Sunday, we are encouraged to worship in another friends meeting:
Miami Friends Meeting hosted the summer camp graduation party of Madre Tierra Kids, a program organized by the American Friends Service Committee, funded by the Alianza Americas and Miami Friends. The children, refugees from Central America, went on field trips and did activities which focused on cultural pride, artistic traditions, and empowerment.
Submitted by Kathy Hersh:
70 organizations, ranging from faith communities to the Florida PTA signed on to the League of Women Voters of Florida's letter asking for gun control legislation without delay from the Fla legislature. The response has been so overwhelming they are setting up a statewide steering committee. They will keep all the groups informed on what collective action to take next.
Join us for an hour of peaceful centering and deep sharing on a spiritual theme that speaks to our times.
7:30 pm at the Miami Friends Meetinghouse, 1185 Sunset Drive.
