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 (May 2018)

May 2018
Advice and Query
Advice:
“Oh, my dearly beloved Friends, unto whom my life reaches, read me in the covenant of Light, and life, and peace, where our unity stands, in that which was before words were, and shall be when words are no more.”  — Joan Broooksop, An Invitation to Love, 1662

 

Query:
“How can we make the meeting a community in which each person is accepted and nurtured, and strangers are welcome? Seek to know one another in the things that are eternal, bear the burdens of each other’s failures and pray for one another. As we enter with tender sympathy into the joy and sorrows of each other’s lives. ready to give help and to receive it, our meeting can be a channel for God’s love and forgiveness.”
