Baltimore Yearly Meeting is the regional organizing unit for the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in the area of central Pennsylvania, Maryland, parts of West Virginia, Virginia, and the District of Columbia. It is through membership in a Yearly Meeting that individual Quakers become connected with the larger Quaker movement worldwide. "In fellowship, in deep listening, in waiting worship, in commitment to each other, it richly rewards those who embrace the challenge of being a Yearly Meeting Friend." (2011 draft Faith and Practice)
The Gathered Meeting
Warrington Quarterly Meeting presents Steven Davison to lead a discussion about The Gathered Meeting, the subject of his 2017 Pendle Hill Pamphlet by that title. We’ll explore what the Gathered Meeting is and why it’s important in both the history of Friends and for our future. We’ll also discuss things that Meetings and individuals can do to make our experience of holy communion more common in our worship. There will be a brown bag lunch after the discussion.
