In the Quaker tradition of Midweek (Wednesday) worship, we at the Friends House are excited to bring you MIDWEEK: Experiments in Faithfulness. This is a weekly, one-hour, facilitated spiritual practice with Quaker flavor and an experimental ethos. Each week, a guest facilitator will engage us in a unique spiritual practice that is meaningful to them, and that we can bring into our own lives.
** This program is FREE and OPEN TO THE PUBLIC **

“We shall not be able to rebuild our shattered world until we recover our faith in eternal realities, and we shall not do that until we discover spirit within ourselves.” – Rufus Jones, The Inner Life
What does it look like to cultivate inward life today? What kinds of support, practices, and communities might we need in order to get in touch with the divine or Light within?
Part of the grounding of Quakerism is the experience of the Inward Light — that divine spark that lives in us. But Friends don’t always talk about what that kind of experience is like, or the practices that help access those experiences.
Discovering Spirit Within Ourselves is a series of workshops meant to delve deeper into mystical spiritual traditions. Rooted in Quaker beliefs, these workshops will use Quaker theology and other spiritual traditions to help participants discover the spirit within themselves.
This workshop is for everyone — Quakers and non-Quakers, no matter where you fall on the question of “God” (including theists and non-theists), or whether you have engaged in a practice like this before.

WALKING WITH THE BIBLE is a monthly bilingual series of Bible hours (2 hours each) on January 22, February 26, and March 26. Sponsored by FWCC/CMCA.
In this series, Peter Blood-Patterson will welcome a series of different Friends as guest leaders (Emma Condori on Jan. 22, Cristela Martinez on Feb. 26, and Nelson Ayala Amaya on March 26). We will have a chance to hear what role the Bible plays in each of these Friends’ lives and to hear what approaches to the Bible they find work in their personal practice and group settings, and we will read and discuss a piece of Scripture that is meaningful for them.
