Friends see worship, when we come together on first day mornings, as a communal activity, rather than an individual one.
Friends arrive promptly to gather themselves into the silence. Yet the object of our style of worship is not silence, but the quiet waiting for an opening to the divine within ourselves.
As we settle into worship, the quiet becomes vital and alive. Vocal messages come out of this animated stillness to enrich the group worship.
Friends distinguish vocal ministry (that which comes from the spirit) from commentary prompted by a personal agenda.
A time for reflection between messages allows us to contemplate the spiritual meaning and explore the relation of what is spoken to our own circumstances.
Friends perceive the responsibility for ministry (in all senses of the word) as resting on each of us in the community, both during our hour of shared worship and in our lives beyond the Meeting House walls.
When we act on the peace testimony through work on a meeting committee, when we offer support to another through a difficult time in life, or give voice to the divine at Meeting for Worship, we engage in Quaker ministry.
Albuquerque Friends are committed to providing a space where anyone, young or old, of any sexual or gender orientation, race or cultural identity, of any ability or of various financial means may feel both welcome and safe.
