Doylestown Quakers . . . . Today
The central belief of Quakers is that there is a spark of the Divine in every person. From that concept flows the traditional Quaker concerns for nonviolent conflict resolution, respect for each human being, and the belief in everyone’s ability to have a direct, living relationship with the Divine.
At Doylestown Friends we meet for worship from 10:00 to 11:00 am on Sunday mornings in the Meeting Houseon Oakland Avenue in Doylestown, PA. We seek to be receptive to the Spirit within ourselves and others. We are an open and inclusive community, and guests are welcome. To learn more about Quaker Worship, click here. We hope to see you soon!
I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality... I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word.
-Martin Luther King, Jr.
This week in FDS the children will be using recycled materials, containers and boxes to cooperatively build anything they can imagine.
