Southern Illinois Quaker Meeting

Quakers in Carbondale                [Member Login]

We are an open, welcoming and affirming community of seekers. Our weekly, hour-long worship format is to wait in expectant silence, listening for the prompts of the Inner Teacher. Sometimes this guidance inspires us to certain action in our lives, and sometimes the guidance takes the form of a spoken "message" which is shared from the silence as ministry to one another. We engage in this mutual ministry without a pastor or sermon; instead, we manage the business of the meeting by rotating in service as Clerk, Recording Clerk, Treasurer, committee members, and coordinators.

We use Quaker traditions, practices and disciplines to nurture our transformation, which grounds our individual witness in the world, and inspires our meeting.

We share our gifts both individually and collectively with our local community as well as with wider networks of seekers.

We take joy in including and engaging our children and youth in our ongoing exploration of values, history and relationships.
