Oberlin Friends (Quaker) Meeting

Excerpt from OUR WELCOMING MINUTE approved and sent to Lake Erie Yearly Meeting:  
         “We are a spiritually diverse meeting representing many branches of American Quakerism. As a consequence, it is important for us to warmly affirm our commitment to welcome all into our worship. There is also a real concern to look behind the particular language of a ministry to the intention and the wisdom that prompted it. There is a warm, unified commitment of welcoming all and to respecting the diversity of our religious experience and expression.”

During this time of Covid-19, we are meeting via Zoom virtual Meeting for Worship each Sunday. Please contact Clerk David Snyder for zoom address. 440-574-9501; [email protected]. Zoom is a free service for attendees on mobile phones, iPads, and computers.

Unprogrammed ("silent") worship.
Everyone is welcome!  Members and visitors; students and townspeople; stay-at-homes and immigrants; refugees and migrants; gays and straights; introverts and extroverts; everyone else also.

Come with us over to the dining room in Heiser (Main Bldg).  If you do not live at Kendal, please tell the hostess that you are with Oberlin Friends Meeting, and then help yourself to the buffet.

Four Pillars of Meeting for Business, Debbie Humphries, September 1, 2009
Friends Journal 
1) that the meeting is rooted in worship;
2) that the meeting is clerked;
3) that there is enough time, a sense of spaciousness;
4) that decisions are made by sense of the meeting.
