Find Quakers

You are welcome at any of our Meetings and Worship Groups! We are a mix of newcomers and longtime members, with people of various religious backgrounds, gender identities and orientations.

Our Worship

Quaker worship is grounded in silence, where we listen deeply for what is in our hearts, for inner guidance, and a sense of connection. There is no program or sermon.

Our Faith

The heart of our faith is the experience of the inner source of spiritual connection, renewal, and guidance that is present in everyone. We have no creedal beliefs; faith is a way of life.

What we do

Southeastern Yearly Meeting brings together Friends from Meetings and Worship Groups in our region to share resources, deepen our faith, and work together to advocate for peace, social justice, and sustainability. We hold events in person and online, gathering for spiritual renewal, collaboration, friendship, and fun. We connect Friends to the wider Quaker community, and write and publish the SEYM Faith & Practice.

Queries for the Journey

The Worship and Ministry Committee offers “Queries for the Journey,” weekly queries to help Friends center in their daily journey through quiet, contemplative reflection. New queries will be posted monthly.

Queries for the Journey – 5th Month (May) 2024

1st week:
Listening is a spiritual practice. How do you prepare yourself to listen to the still, small voice? To listen to others? To listen to God?

2nd week:
While honoring your core truths, what helps you listen to hard messages or to people with whom you have had difficult relationships? How does love guide your listening? What helps you nurture your Spirit when you have listened deeply?

3rd week:
How do you quiet the real demands of the world to feel Spirit’s movement and hear your true voice? When you quiet the internal and external noises and messages, what are you hearing?

4th week:
We each have our own way of listening. How do you leave space to hear “where the words come from?” (John Woolman’s Journal)
