During gathered worship the silence may be broken when a Friend rises and is moved to speak from direct spiritual experience. Silence returns as those present reflect on the content of the message. Sometimes other messages follow the first. It is possible—and quite acceptable—for a meeting to pass entirely in silence. Friends’ messages from the spirit are often moving. But it is in the silence that the meeting gathers and Friends finds connection with one another and with the light that is to be found within each of us.
Friends seek the light or that of God in every person, not just in meeting. We strive to keep that expectation before us in all of our dealings with others. Attending Meeting for Worship is how we prepare ourselves for the work that is required of us during the rest of the week.
