Yellow Springs Friends Meeting

Welcome to the Yellow Springs Friends Meeting (Quaker)

While we have temporarily suspended worshipping physically inside Rockford Chapel, we are staying together through email, social media and Online Worship.  Please check  our Calendar to see what On-line Events we are scheduling.  

We meet on First Day (Sunday) on Zoom at 11:00 a.m.

There is an Early morning self led worship daily on Zoom at 8:30 a.m.

If the weather allows, in Spring, Summer and Fall, we may meet on First Day (Sunday) in person at 8:30, under a canopy at Rockford Chapel. Bring your own chair.  Wearing a mask is required, as is maintaining social distancing! 

We have other meetings scheduling during the week.  It is best to check our Calendar  for dates and times, or to get links to Zoom meetings as needed.

Yellow Springs Friends Meeting is a welcoming faith community within the Quaker tradition. We believe that there is “that of God in everyone” and that every person has the capacity to experience divine presence and guidance.

Accordingly, our tradition upholds ideals of equality and peace. These spiritually based ideals have historically inspired, and continue to lead Friends to work toward building a world free of war and defined by social justice for all. We also embrace principles of simplicity, integrity and community, the manifestations of which include a concern for ecological sustainability.  

The experience of worshipping together remains the center of our community life and the source for our shared activities in the world. Our worship is conducted in the traditional “unprogrammed” manner of early Friends – we have no clergy, liturgy or prepared music. In our “silent” worship, where anyone may share as led, we seek a sense of unity with the divine and each other that sustains and defines us.

On line discussion of Pendle Hill pamphlet (#465), Dr. Howard D. Weaver, an African American Quaker Scholar-Activist,  which challenges conventional narratives.   

Dr. Weaver (aka Hal) says "this pamphlet is not designed to outline to meetings specific steps for dealing with internal racism and white supremacy in Quaker institutions, but is instead focused on beginning the work of retrospective justice. In order to achieve justice for all, we must look at how our world is built upon systemic injustice, beginning with how our world has been intentionally divided by race."
