What Do Friends Believe?

Join us online Thursday, March 21 7-8:30pm, for another night of Quakerism 101 hosted by Lake Erie Yearly Meeting.  Kalamazoo Friends will present “What Do Friends Believe,” exploring how the beliefs of early Friends shaped their practices. We will share experiences of present-day Friends in different branches of Quakerism to show how Quaker beliefs have broadened. We will discuss Quaker testimonies (SPICES) and how we test whether we are putting our beliefs into action. Lastly, attenders will participate in breakout sessions to share their own beliefs.

Later sessions include discussion of the meeting for business, led by LEYM Clerk Susan Loucks of Pittsburgh Meeting on Wednesday, April 17, and an introduction to Quaker service organizations from Red Cedar Meeting on Thursday, May 16.

All sessions are open to anyone—seasoned Friends, newcomers, seekers, young and old. Time for reflection and interaction is included in all sessions.

The Thursday, March 21 session will be from 7-8:30 pm on Zoom.
