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.

To Friends on the Western USA and Canada - I just wanted to put in a recommendation for the Way of the Spirit program. It's patterned after the School of the Spirit, a program of contemplation and study rooted in Judeo-Christian/Early Quaker heritage.
I just completed the first year and have signed up for the second. The best part of the program is it actively includes Friends from evangelical and liberal traditions.
I just want to make sure that Seattle area Friends are aware of the upcoming Inner Fire retreat this November. This is the second event sponsored by the Way of the Spirit. The facilitators are from both NPYM and NWYM.
