Baltimore Yearly Meeting builds and nurtures a strong and vibrant Quaker community across the southern Mid-Atlantic. We seek to build community, grow in the life of the spirit, discern right action, and bear witness in the world. BYM includes Quaker meetings in parts of Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. The BYM Office, located in Sandy Spring, MD, provides technical support to local Quaker Meetings and opportunities for Quakers in our region to work, play, serve, learn, and grow spiritually together as Friends.

No previous study is expected or required. We just look at a few verses and discuss them following the Friendly Bible Study method developed by Joanne and Larry Spears:
…but it’s not required to read that either.
Friendly Bible Study approaches the Bible with respect to the Quaker practice of finding insight through experience, continuing revelation, and honestly talking about problems. Our sessions are convened by Eli Courtwright, and me, John Allder Stephens, members of Alexandria MM.
Over the past year, we have come together as a learning team, and our discussions have produced deep connections and rich, meaningful reflections about life! We welcome young Friends 12 and up; and their adults who are willing to make space for young Friends to develop their own understandings.
