Meeting for Worship on Zoom – in the Manner of Friends

We are currently conducting our Meetings for Worship on Zoom in this manner:

We keep our microphones on “Mute” and the “Chat” option off during Worship. Halfway through the Clerk will read a query. Friends may respond out of the silence by unmuting and then muting again when finished.

Near the end of Meeting, the person closing Meeting will inquire if there is any ministry left unspoken, prayers needed, or joys to share. We respond to this, if moved to do so, in the manner of worship-sharing, with a moment of silence between responses.

Meeting closes after the question, “are Friends clear?”

After Meeting is closed, we enjoy visiting with one another.

If this is your first time attending a Quaker Meeting for worship, here is a link to what to expect.
