Join us for our Meeting for Worship
Sundays, from 10:30-11:30am
Our Meeting House was built in 1859 and is surrounded by peaceful scenery. The two acres of grounds that go with the Meeting House has a modestly small cemetery in the back. This area in the town of Coldstream is generally considered a historical site and draws many visitors throughout the year.
What we have in common with all traditionally Quaker groups and Meetings can be comprised in the following short summary:
- There is something sacred in all people
- All people are equal before God
- Religion is about the whole of life
- We meet in stillness to discover a deeper sense of God’s presence
- True religion leads to respect for the earth and all life upon it
- Each person is unique, precious, a child of God
a Divine Center, a speaking Voice, to which we may continuously return.
Eternity is at our hearts, pressing upon our time-torn lives, warming
us with intimations of an astounding destiny, calling us home to Itself”
From A Testament of Devotion, a Quaker classic,
by Thomas R. Kelly (1893 – 1941)
