Friends of Jesus Fellowship - Seattle
 
We gather in the Quaker tradition of waiting worship for “the Power of the Lord to be over all.” We believe worship can be powerful:
 
-- When it is Spirit-led
-- When there is authentic sharing
-- When that sharing takes place with others who are hungry for transformation
-- When we are trusting and loving enough to challenge our assumptions and acknowledge our vulnerabilities
-- When we recognize that our areas of discomfort can also be areas of growth
-- When we are willing to commit to a spiritual discipline
-- When we can draw on God’s strength and covenant community to deal with our life and spiritual difficulties.
 
Please join us if you are eager to explore silent worship, direct and continuing revelation, and a deepening understanding of Quaker faith and history and its place in the Judeo-Christian tradition. We are broadly affirming of the variety of human creation – physical, mental, emotional, cultural, socio-economic, and in gender expression and sexual orientation. We welcome all God’s children to gather for dinner, worship, and to be real about ourselves, our faith, our struggles, and our hopes.
 
We gather on first and third Sundays in a participant’s home, 5:00 - 7:00 pm over a light supper.

I was referring to Paul Anderson's use of sacramentology in a Quaker Religious Thought article from 2007.
Comment by Stuart Masters on 4th mo. 20, 2010 at 5:28pm
I presume that Rodney is refering to the Quaker view that the whole of life is sacramental in the sense that in the new covenant there are no outward barriers or limitations to communion with God. Clearly, if we adopt the 'normal' theological definition of sacrament as an outward sign conveying an inward spiritual grace, for Quakers, sacraments are entirely superfulous.

"Quakerquaker" is a site devoted to being a sounding board about the revival of primative Christianity. It seems to me that one of the preliminary steps of this revival is, as Wilmer Cooper put it, the recovery of a normitive Quakerism. Cooper details three ingredients for recovery: a central focus and identity as Friends; sufficient latitude for all who seek after the Truth and the Light; and a foundation of New Covenant Christianity. As I understand it, and I would appreciate anyone else's thought, the central focus and identity are found within the unified whole of our Testimonies (peace, equality, integrity and sacramentology). Whenever a Friends meeting abandons or dilutes the focus on the Testimonies, the identity as "Quaker" is diminished.

Wess Daniels: Advent Message “Come Be Born in Us”
If Christ came two thousand and nine (or so) years ago, then Christ is also born every year at Christmas and he is born in us every time we make the space in our wombs for the divine gestation to take place.

Besty Blake: He Lives! Besty Blake's audio from her talk at Pendle Hill is now online. Betsy is a Jesus-loving, lifelong Quaker from Greensboro, NC, and a member of Friends United Meeting. She became intrigued with different kinds of Quakers after attending a Youthquake in 1991. In the Quaker Leader Scholars Program at Guilford College, she spent four years dialoguing and worshipping with Friends from across the spectrum. Betsy served as the North American-based Coordinator for the World Gathering of Young Friends and co-produced the documentary "Can We ALL Be Friends?" At the age of 5, Betsy had a vision of the Living Christ in an evening worship at a meetinghouse in central Indiana. Years later, during a Quaker summer camp service, she made a commitment to that Living Christ who has held, comforted, and challenged her in the many years since. Through highest highs and lowest lows, Jesus has been her rock. Posted by C Wess Daniels
