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!
The Meeting House is CLOSED due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our regular Sunday 10 AM worship will take place online via Zoom.WORSHIP ONLINE
Advice and Query (March 2020)
“All Friends everywhere, meet together and in the Measure of God’s Spirit—wait. And Friends, meet together and know one another in that which is Eternal, which was before the world was … the Light, in which is Unity. In the Light wait and walk, that you may have Fellowship one with another … Dwelling in Love you dwell in God, and from the Life the eternal Love does flow … so with the Light you will come to witness the Faith unfeigned which works by Love and purifies the heart. “
— from Epistle #149 of George Fox
With all the tasks and responsibilities of committee business and work, how do you prepare for these meetings by waiting …? In these times of personal and community turmoil, are you able to witness to a Faith which—rather than by judgment or outcomes—works by Love?
