Beacon Hill Friends House Programs

Online opportunities for spiritual exploration and deepening, and social action.

MIDWEEK: Experiments in Faithfulness

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 free, weekly, facilitated spiritual practice with Quaker flavor and an experimental ethos.

Each Wednesday evening, a guest facilitator engages us in a unique spiritual practice. You can attend live, or you can view the short videos later!

Friday, November 27, 6:30 PM - 8 PM (ET): A programmed Zoom dinner to cultivate community and share in gratefulness. We will draw on Beacon Hill Friends House traditions as well as experiment with being together on Zoom to share a meal the Friday after Thanksgiving. ** This event is free and open to the public. Closed captioning available, please email if you need closed captioning in breakout rooms. **

Walking with the Bible

This is a monthly series of Bible hours on the first Sunday of the month, in partnership our friends at Woolman Hill.

In each session, Peter Blood-Patterson will welcome a series of different Friends as guest leaders. 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.

Looking deeply at Thanksgiving

This is an interactive event, where participants will be invited to consider difficult truths about Thanksgiving, reflect with others, and hear some messages of hope around what a new Thanksgiving built on justice and right relationship might look like.

Art Journaling as a Spiritual Practice in Turbulent Times workshops

In these turbulent times, we all need resources and practices that help us process and center. Every Saturday in November, from 10 AM to 11:30 AM (ET), join LJ Boswell for a nurturing and supportive environment to explore the wisdom of your own inner landscape and the power of art to help you process life.

Simple Morning Meditation Practice

This simple meditation practice helps reduce stress and ease you into the morning. The meditation is 15 minutes long, and begins and ends with a brief introduction to the practice. Orientation for newcomers begins at 8:00 AM, and the practice begins at 8:10 AM, Monday through Friday. Join once or join regularly! This meditation is free and open to the public.
