Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends
A monthly meeting of the Religious Society of Friends.

Live Oak Friends Meeting (Houston)

We are an open, welcoming community of seekers who meet in silent worship expecting to experience direct communion with God, the divine Spirit, or whatever name we use for that transcendent essence that infuses all life. A fundamental Quaker belief is that there is “that of God in everyone.” We seek to interact with others from that perspective, and to live our lives according to the Quaker testimonies of integrity, equality, simplicity, and peace.

Our meeting house is a James Turrell Skyspace, open to the public every Friday night and the first Sunday of each month 30 minutes before sunset.  Weather permitting, the roof will be open to allow the public to experience the play of changing light over the simple white interior walls.

We share the blessing of this building by allowing individuals to rent it for weddings and memorial services. Community groups may also rent the building for events in keeping with Quaker values.

Live Oak Friends Meeting is a member of Bayou Quarterly Meeting, a regional group of Quaker meetings in southeast Texas and Louisiana; South Central Yearly Meeting, a larger group of Quaker meetings across Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, and Louisiana; and Friends General Conference, a national organization of Quakers.

Representative Report of the South Central Yearly Meeting 2018

Just under 160 souls attended South Central Yearly Meeting between March 29 & April 1, 2018 in Bruceville, Texas.  

As Live Oak Friends Meeting Representative to South Central, I conveyed LOFM memorial minutes of June Bray, Jann Barr, and Pam Hunter and shared in the joint LOFM+Caddo Worship Group birth announcement of Gustav Drexler. I thank Claude Jager-Rubinson & Betty Drexler helping me with the reading of Pam’s minute and Gustav’s announcement.

While working on LOFM's Propety Workday (March 24, 2018), one friend pulled vines out of the south fence and trees there.  Spring has come and poison ivy is back.  commented that the poison ivy was out.  So are greenbriar, muscadine grape, and Virginia creeper. 

If you react to poison ivy or don't know, stay away from the vines along the south fence.  Itchy and a bumpy rash can be serious and start to come out in a day or two.  With a friend who touched them today, he scrubbed to get the oil off his skin.
