MIDWEEK June 17, 2020: Eppchez Yes | Finding Movement for Worship
Quakers have a history of holding worship on First Day (Sunday) and Midweek (Wednesday).
Here at the Friends House, we are interested in experimenting with what midweek worship might look like. So we came up with MIDWEEK, a one-hour facilitated spiritual practice and reflection with a Quaker flavor on Wednesday evenings on Zoom. (From 7:30 – 8:30 PM, ET)
This event is free and open to the public. Invite your communities!
A practice for grounding in your body and using movement to invite spirit in deeper.
