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 (February 2018)

February 2018
Advice and Query
Advice:
From Faith and Practice pg 123 — “The Religious Society of Friends is a community of people who strive to care for one another. Friends are advised to maintain love and unity, to avoid tale-bearing and detraction, and to settle differences promptly in a manner free from resentment and inward violence. Live affectionately as friends, entering with sympathy into the joys and sorrows of one another’s daily lives. Visit one another. Be ready to both give and receive help. Bear the burdens of one another’s failings; delight in one another’s strengths. Seek to know one another in the things that are eternal. Make the meeting a channel for God’s love and forgiveness.”
