Oberlin Friends (Quaker) Meeting

Excerpt from OUR WELCOMING MINUTE approved and sent to Lake Erie Yearly Meeting:  
         “We are a spiritually diverse meeting representing many branches of American Quakerism. As a consequence, it is important for us to warmly affirm our commitment to welcome all into our worship. There is also a real concern to look behind the particular language of a ministry to the intention and the wisdom that prompted it. There is a warm, unified commitment of welcoming all and to respecting the diversity of our religious experience and expression.”

Unprogrammed ("silent") worship.
Everyone is welcome!  Members and visitors; students and townspeople; stay-at-homes and immigrants; refugees and migrants; gays and straights; introverts and extroverts; everyone else also.

The Oberlin, Ohio, Meeting is a congregation of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).  We are affiliated with the Lake Erie Yearly Meeting and the Friends General Conference.

Four Pillars of Meeting for Business, Debbie Humphries, September 1, 2009
Friends Journal 
https://www.friendsjournal.org/2009098/
1) that the meeting is rooted in worship;
2) that the meeting is clerked;
3) that there is enough time, a sense of spaciousness;
      and
4) that decisions are made by sense of the meeting.
