Memphis Friends Meeting (Quaker)
Unprogrammed worship is silent worship. We enter the meeting room silently. Our first task when worship begins is to center down, to still the clamor of the world, to turn our attention to the inner voice.
11 am Sundays
Parking is available on Prescott.
Please enter through the side kitchen door.
On Fifth Sunday, a morning when often committees gather to meet before worship, the Nominating Committee provided a continental breakfast. Nominating will serve breakfast again on Fifth Sunday in September. All are welcome, including committee members and the committee-curious.
The work on the hall bathroom is nearly done. Instead of a full bath in a tiny space, we’ll have a half bath with a chair-height toilet, grab bars, a wall mount sink, and a wide entry door. Here’s a photo of the work in progress showing the new floor, the new door, and the new sheet rock replacing the pink tile. By the time you read this the walls will be painted, the fixtures may be back in place, and the curtains may be re-hung.
At the June business meeting... "Friends approved hanging the Love Thy Neighbor (No Exceptions) sign for the month of June in recognition of Pride Month and World Refugee Day."
Recently one of our young Friends asked Friends to support her in collecting bears for the Memphis Child Advocacy Center. New bears (14" or bigger) are always welcome!
At the March 10 business meeting, Friends approved the Meeting's collective signature of the TEP's clergy statement: "As leaders of faith communities we oppose these bills in the Tennessee General Assembly. They promote discrimination rather than justice and demean the worth of LGBTQ people in our state. We call on people of good will to join us in speaking out for basic fairness." Individual Friends are also encouraged to sign as we are all ministers.
