Friends General Conference

Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

Miami Friends Meeting

Welcome to Miami Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, known to most people as Quakers. Our faith and practices are based on the belief that every person has a divine spark, often called the Inner Light, which is available to guide us towards doing what is right. It is this basic belief that leads us to oppose war and to work actively for peace and justice.

In practice, we sit in silence in our meeting for worship until someone feels certain they have been given a divine message meant to be shared with everyone present. In a Friends meeting, there may be a wide range of ideas about the nature of divinity, names used, and sources of inspiration, including but not exclusively the Bible, the writings of George Fox, the man who started Quakerism, and other sacred texts and inspired contemporary writings.

Spiritual State of The Meeting 2016
Miami Friends Meeting

Prologue
2016 was an active year in the spiritual life of this Meeting. We offer this report as a reflective document
that seeks to state where we are at the present from a spiritual perspective. This reflection will include
instances where we feel that we have done our best to further the creation of a Beloved community, and it
will also highlight areas where we think we can do better in achieving the same.

At the Meeting for Business of January 8, 2017, the Miami MM of Friends approved a minute: “Miami Friends Meeting wishes to declare itself welcoming to immigrants beginning with a commitment to education of each other and the community.” At that time, we created an ad hoc committee to implement the minute. The committee includes Kathy Hersh, Rusty Levenson, Josh Paolino, April Merleaux, Holly Iglesias, Tere Campos, Jeannette Smith, and Jane Westberg.

Minute of Support for Planned Parenthood

Approved by Miami Friends Meeting, SEYM, Sept. 18, 2016

Planned Parenthood has recently come under extreme criticism from politicians because of allegations that have now been proven false. The current political move to defund Planned Parenthood would be disastrous. It would make it impossible for millions of Americans to obtain preventive services such as cancer screening and family planning.
