Mid-Week Meeting for Worship
Please note that in response to Pennsylvania’s social distancing measures preventing the spread of coronavirus infections, first day and mid-week meetings are suspended through March 31, 2020. The meeting will update this notice before that date.
At Radnor Meeting we have organized a mid-week opportunity for worship on Wednesday evenings from 7 to 8 pm. Like our Sunday meeting, the mid-week meeting is unprogrammed, meaning that the worship service centers on an expectant silence. The basis for this is the Quaker belief that each person has the capacity to know directly the will of God, without the interpretation of an intermediary.
Are you a spiritual seeker? All are welcome at Radnor Meeting!
The goal of our corporate worship is to enter the divine presence. The silence may be broken when a worshipper feels moved to rise and speak out of spiritual experience. Silence follows messages as Friends reflect on what has been said. Often other messages follow the first. It is possible, and quite acceptable, for a meeting to pass entirely in silence, but messages from the Spirit, through Friends, are the most tangible part of our worship together.
The meeting ends at approximately 7:50 when a designated person on the facing bench shakes the hand of a neighbor; all present then shake hands with their neighbors.
