Welcome to Boulder Friends Meeting!

1825 Upland Avenue, Boulder, Colorado 80304   [Map]  

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!

Advice and Query (July 2018)

July 2018
Advice and Query

Above all things take heed of judging one another, for in that ye may destroy one another, and leave one another behind, and drive one another away, back into the world, and eat out the good of one another…   so go in the Truth, answering it in every one in the inward parts and in the power of God…   in that is your life.

—  George Fox, Epistle 219 – 1662


How are we doing in our Meeting and individually, in living as a community that strives to forgo harmful judgements, and instead actively and creatively lift one another up into the power and presence of God (the Creative)?
