Trenton Meeting of Friends

Welcome to Trenton Meeting of Friends of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)! 

We meet for Worship each First Day (Sunday) at 10am.

There will be no gatherings at Trenton Friends Meeting House until the pandemic situation allows.
We will worship together using Zoom on our computers or telephones each week for now. If you want to join us for Quaker Worship and are not on our mailing list already you can request an invitation by emailing [email protected].

We worship together for about an hour in what is mostly silence.  Although not much is being said, there is much going on as we center together in prayer.  Sometimes out of that silence, people rise to speak, sharing messages that come from the holy part of them. We find the honesty and truth revealed in this way to be helpful and inspiring, sometimes leading to callings and actions.  Trenton's Quakers are active making contributions to our community and our world.

Among the historical testimonies that express central values of Quakers are the presence of God in each person, a direct and individual communion with God, and between all human beings a working towards peace, equality, simplicity, care of the environment and care for each other.  In these times, many people feel these leadings!

Dear Governor Murphy:

We are extremely concerned about global warming and the effect it is having on our state. We are asking you to take a more aggressive stance against fracked gas pipelines and other uses of fossil fuels.

At the request of some who were at the Meetinghouse during our memorial worship for Thereas, I've created a site where sharing can occur.

I think people who could not attend her memorial would like to hear our thoughts in this way so it might be nice to make an entry even if it repeats what we expressed on Sunday.

Feedback, comments and requests for help with the site can be directed to me at [email protected] or 609 635-1082. - Charlie Hardy

Dear Editor,

After 20 months of negotiations the biggest congressional vote on war and peace is coming this month.  We urge our elected representatives to side with peace and vote in favor of the Iran deal.  We urge our fellow citizens to recognize that this agreement is the best way to prevent Iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon and protect the United States from another devastating war in the Middle East.  And war brings no assurance of success but does guarantee mayhem and destruction as we have seen in our recent forays in Iraq and Afghanistan.
