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!     Read more …


Advice and Query for November, 2015:

Advice from “The Purpose of Meetings for Worship and for Business”, Paul Lacey & Bill Taber (from Friends General Conference).

“…the meeting for business, if it be Spirit-filled and properly understood, is a hands-on, laboratory-filled experience in which the whole fellowship comes face to face with the Spirit’s demands for the sacrifice of time, treasure, convenience, and prejudice. When opinions differ widely and the need for spiritual discernment becomes crucial, the best are driven, as never in a meeting for worship, to seek that Spirit which can sustain harmony while waiting for the right leading. Thus, God’s work among us becomes more real and faith is both tested and strengthened in the business meeting.”

Query from SF Monthly Meeting (from FGC):

“Do you come to meeting eager to search for God’s will rather than to try to win acceptance for a previously formed opinion of your own? Are you prepared to assist by silent, prayerful consideration, speaking only if you feel you have a helpful contribution to make?”
