Worship: The Heart of Our Shared Experience

The heart of our life as Friends is the experience of shared worship. In worship, we can experience God's presence in a way that draws us closer into relationship with each other and informs our daily lives.

In the video below, Friends from meetings across New England describe the experience of deep worship as well as the practice of having "care of meeting". Tips and reflections are given about cultivating powerful vocal ministry, supporting the experience of each worshipper, and the way that our individual spiritual practices enrich worship for all.
