Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

North Columbus Friends Meeting

We are...
North Columbus Friends Meeting is an unprogrammed Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). 

North Columbus Friends Meeting recognizes that, because of the climate of fear and hostility fed by the recent election, many who have been explicitly targeted by the campaign, including people of color, LGBTQ+ people, Muslims, immigrants and people with disabilities, may feel particularly unsafe, excluded or afraid.

We publicly identify our Meeting as a place of refuge and sanctuary for our neighbors who might feel under threat. As Friends, we are committed to oppose racism, homophobia, Islamophobia, and gender-based violence; as well as discrimination and oppression in all its forms.

We welcome opportunities to partner with and accompany marginalized communities. We are open to participating in any ecumenical, interfaith and community events that promote unity, connection, dialogue and mutual respect; and oppose hate and division.

Seeking Quakers meets Wednesday OCT 4, 5:30 potluck 6:15 discussion/worship sharing round the fireplace. Consider joining us to respond to this query: "How do Quakers find guidance from the ‘Light within’ in daily life?"

“Art thou a child of light and hast thou walked in the light, and what thou speakest, is it inwardly from God?”    – Margaret Fell, remembering words of George Fox from her first encounter with him.

Am I equally willing to offer assistance to others in the Meeting and to accept graciously the help of others? Do I recognize and face situations that put me in conflict with others? Do I treat adults and children alike with respect and without condescension?

Is the Meeting a safe, loving place? When we become aware of someone’s need, do we offer assistance? Are we working to make the Meeting House and its property physically accessible to all?

SMALL FEET ON THE RUN

1: NONVIOLENCE IS A WAY OF LIFE FOR COURAGEOUS PEOPLE. It is a positive force confronting the forces of injustice, and uses the righteous indignation and the spiritual, emotional, and intellectual capabilities of people as the vital force for change and reconciliation.
