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,
sexual orientation and gender identity (to name only the most
obvious). Our ongoing efforts to assure that Everyone
Is Welcome are also reflected in our public statement
meeting minutes addressing equality,
race and gender identity.
In meeting for worship, we reflect together in silence, listening for
the Divine to speak to us, unless someone feels led by the Spirit to
share a message aloud.
