Grass Valley Friends Meeting

Our spiritual life as Quakers is centered on our way of worshipping God: We meet together in silence. Here we come to know each other in the spirit and build the “beloved community,” and here we are led by the divine. We offer several queries to contemplate this: Do I live in thoughtful awareness of God’s constant presence in my life? Am I sensitive and open to leadings of the spirit in my life? What steps do I take to center my life and to stay open to continuing revelation? For more information about the local Quaker Meeting, contact Dean Olson, 273-2094.
