Who are we?
The Atlanta Friends Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends is
an unprogrammed, non-pastoral Quaker Meeting, gathered in the belief
that every person has the capacity to know the will of the Divine
directly, in continuing revelation, requiring neither a specific
liturgy nor the interpretation of an intermediary.
Because Friends believe that there is that of God in everyone, we
welcome each person, regardless of race, color, ethnicity, national
origin, age, sex, marital status, disability, religious beliefs,
orientation and gender identity (to name only the most obvious).
Our ongoing efforts to assure that Everyone
Is Welcome are also reflected in
public statement meeting minutes addressing equality,
race and gender identity.
In meeting for worship, we reflect together in silence, listening
the Divine to speak to us, unless someone feels led by the Spirit to
share a message aloud.
