Wrightstown Friends Meeting

ALL ARE WELCOME

Please join us each Sunday at 10:00 am for Meeting for Worship. 

Our service consists of silent, “expectant waiting” for spiritual guidance in our lives. Divine “leadings” may come to anyone at any time, and by sharing these messages we may help to guide one another. 

Quakers (we also call ourselves “Friends”) remain open to new revelations of truth through “that of God in everyone”. Though we have no set doctrine or creed, instead we have queries (probing questions) that help guide our thoughts and actions. In addition, there are testimonies of our witness to common values acted out in the world. Each Quaker searches for how these guides can be best expressed in his or her own life.

As a group, we discover that listening to and seeking God’s will leads to:

Peace Seeking justice and healing for all people; taking away the causes of war in the way we live.

Integrity Acting on what we believe, speaking the truth, and doing what we say we will do.

Simplicity:  Choosing a well-balanced and unhurried lifestyle with priorities based on our values, and letting unnecessary clutter fall away.

Equality – Treating everyone as equally precious to God, recognizing that all of us have gifts to share.

Community Supporting one another in our faith journeys, and also in times of joy and sorrow; sharing with and caring for each other.

Stewardship Valuing and respecting all creation; using only our fair share of the earth’s resources, and working for policies that protect our planet.

While attempting to live these testimonies, we sometimes don’t hear or follow them with Divine Guidance. When we fall short, Quakers are supportive with themselves and ready to recommit and to continue to endeavor. Being in community with other Friends, helps us all to be faithful.

We have a problem with Stuff. We use too much, too much of it is toxic and we don’t share it very well. But that’s not the way things have to be. Together, we can build a society based on better not more, sharing not selfishness, community not division.

Explore the Inner Life Our First Day School seeks to nurture and support the Meeting's young people and their families. Just as Meeting for Worship is a time for inward searching and prayer, First Day School offers a time and space to explore with Friends, Quaker Testimonies and to foster a deeper connection with our own inner Light and the Light in all people. First Day School values contemplative and action-oriented exploration in a way that encourages an extension of this work into the everyday lives of children and youth.
