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.

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.
This annual event is becoming a Memphis Quaker tradition.

Scattered throughout the meetinghouse are six graphic prints by Quaker artist Maggie Nelson. Each shows a portrait and a quote from the writings of a weighty Quaker. See if you can find them all. Thanks to Carol for this great new brochure.
In a newly found audio, the Civil Rights leader and Quaker, Bayard Rustin, explains why coming out as a gay man "was an absolute necessity." The audio is the latest episode of the podcast Making Gay History.
