Welcome to Boulder Friends Meeting!
1825 Upland Avenue, Boulder, Colorado 80304
Boulder Friends Meeting is part of the Religious Society of Friends (also known as Quakers). Our meetings for worship are held in expectant silence, with no formal program or pastor. Each worshiper seeks to listen to the spirit of God within. If that spirit brings to any of us a message that seems clearly to speak to the condition of others, we may rise to give that message as vocal ministry.
As Friends we endeavor to translate our religious beliefs into everyday life, seeking to “let our lives speak.” Simplicity, equality, integrity, and peace/nonviolence are ideals toward which we strive both in our lives and in the world. Wherever you are on your spiritual journey, we invite you to join us in silent worship and reflection. All are welcome!
Advices from Listening Spirituality: Corporate Spiritual Practice Among Friends, Patricia Loring:

Query: “Do you find it more difficult to listen in an open, humble, and respectful spirit to personal matters or to issues of business that challenge your own views? Are you able to retain your sense of love and unity with someone whose views diverge from or challenge your own? Are you able to give them credit for purity of motive?”
