Albuquerque Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)
Adult Education provides regular opportunities to explore more about Quakerism: Who we are? What do we value? What do we do?
We meet on Sundays from 9-10 AM at the Meeting House and alternate between Worship Sharing and Adult Education discussions.
"Worship Sharing focuses on a particular question and helps us to explore our own experience and share with each other more deeply than we would in normal conversation. It seeks to draw us into sacred space, where we can take down our usual defenses, and encounter each other in "that which is eternal."" (Friends General Conference)
We follow Worship Sharing guidelines developed by Friends General Conference. Click HERE to check out these guidelines!
Adult Education discussion begins with viewing a QuakerSpeak video. An online link to the video is sent to those on the AMM listserv during the preceding week. We suggest you take a peek at the video, if possible but not necessary, before you come.
Would you like to learn more about Quaker faith and practice? Are you new to Friends? Interested in becoming a Friend? Wondering what this “Religious Society of Friends” thing is all about?
Come join us for a seven-week course of discovery that will take place on Sunday mornings at the meeting house from 9:00-10:15 from September 29 to November 10 (seven Sundays).
CHILD CARE will be provided if you need it – but please sign up soon!
