as a symptom or a demonstration of that sickness."

for the purposes of combat."

The Friends World Committee for Consultation, asked a group of Friends (summer 2014)
who were gathered for the planning of the next International Representatives Meeting,
"Why are you a Quaker?"

A Church Reborn
Do you have a yearning for God and a keen sense of spirituality, yet you can't quite find a fit with traditional churches?
Do you have a relationship with God that brings you peace, but you don't know how to be part of church-as-you-know it?
Over 350 years ago, Friends shed the trappings of their traditional church.
They knew that the heart of Christianity was a direct, experiential relationship with Jesus.
If a person had this relationship, they didn't need anything else.
If a person didn't have it, nothing else would satisfy.
It started a movement in which people gathered to know God together --and waited to hear from God directly.
This began the custom of waiting in Silence for ministry to emerge rather than depending upon clergy to do the God-work.
More than just changing worship, it changed the way Friends conducted business together.
In fact, it changed a lot of things,
leading us to beliefs of equality among all people, peacemaking, simplicity, and social justice.

North Seattle Friends Church is the evangelical Friends presence in Seattle.
This just might be what you have been looking for in a church.
Join us for the God-adventure.

"Quakers have never had a creed as something to be repeated or as a standard of admission to membership.
This deliberate omission is not to be understood as an indication of the judgment that convictions are unimportant.
The deepest difficulty with a fixed creed is that it inevitably becomes formal,
and, consequently, can be repeated without conviction. Even with the best of intentions, the formula is artificial and external,
and therefore something for which the sincere Christian dare not settle...
God, Quakers believe, is real."
"The People Called Quakers",
by D. Elton Trueblood, Friends United Press, 1980, page 65

God moves in mysterious ways, and sometimes in real ways.
We had a Meeting for Business at church today, or, to use the full Quaker nomenclature,
Meeting for Worship with a Concern for Business.
I am always amazed by the transparency and care and spirituality of it.
The goal is not to arrive at consensus, but to listen together and discern how the Spirit is leading.
The end result (beside getting business done within a worshipful context) is a deepened sense of faith and community--
that God is present and at work in our midst. (Danny Coleman)
