===========================

Welcome!

We warmly welcome you to Tallahassee Friends Meeting (Quakers)!

A little bit about us: We are a faith community, grounded in the shared experience of God’s Spirit of guidance and grace. We believe that there is that of God, the Inner Light, the Christ Spirit in everyone. Thus, everyone is of equal, infinite worth. We strive to live simply, in honesty and integrity, building community, practicing equality and stewardship, and in peace seeking to prevent wars and other forms of violence. Everyone deserves to share equitably in both the life of our meeting and the world beyond our meeting. We lovingly embrace all people as siblings in our global human family. We do mean ALL people, including those ostracized by our culture at large; Black, Brown, Asian, First people, LGBTQ people, ALL people.

Joyfully, we invite you, your friends, and/or your family to join us in deep and contemplative worship and to discover if our religious community will provide the spiritual home you’re looking for.


===============================

Black Lives Matter

Tallahassee Quakers stand together in their belief that Black lives matter. At the center of our testimony of equality is our belief that we must seek and respond to that of God in every person. Tallahassee Quakers recognize and reject White supremacy and White privilege. The killing of Black Americans at the hands of police cast light on the gross injustices still suffered by People of Color to this day. We support nonviolent protest affirming the importance and value of the lives of our Black brothers and sisters. We call for change, justice, and re-evaluation of the role of the police.


We oppose the deliberate, systemic racism that permeates the power structure of our society. This structure has imposed injustices on People of Color in healthcare, economic, housing and educational opportunities, in the application of law and criminal justice, and in the rights due to all citizens. We join in the efforts of those who work to dismantle these injustices. We challenge all White Americans to look deeply into their hearts and minds to disrupt and root out systemic racism and envision a universal beloved community.

==================================


"WHAT FRIENDS BELIEVE...

The basis of Quaker life and practice is the conviction that there is something of God's spirit in us all: that every soul can have immediate communion with God.

When Friends meet together, they do not rely on priests, clergy, or leaders. The meeting begins in living silence, one in which the clamor of everyday life is stilled and we can hear God's voice. Then there may be brief passages of vocal prayer or ministry from any of those present. When thus seeking God consistently, we can at all times and in any place sense the eternal which is behind the succession of ordinary events.
