Thirty Days of Prayer - Day Seventeen

Mark 4:10 – “When he was alone, those around him with the twelve asked him about the parables”. Sometimes allows situations in our lives that would call for a time of solitude with Him.

When He gets us absolutely alone, and we are dumbfounded by the situation and we cannot even ask a question – then He begins to expound and make things clearer to our minds so that we can know Him better. When you look at the life of Jesus Christ with the disciples, it was the disciples who were perplexed by His deeds and not the crowds outside.

Thirty Days of Prayer - Day Thirteen

One morning, as my knees made their way to my yoga mat where I intended to remain for the next 40 minutes, my mind immediately began formulating prayer requests and praises. I got busy about prayer.

Thirty Days of Prayer - Day Fourteen

In the physical realm, none of us wants to abide (stay, remain, live) in the darkness. When they were young, my children feared that an approaching storm might cause us to lose power and be cast into darkness. Explaining that it would be temporary didn’t give them much comfort.

An Enduring Truth

Image of tea lights.

Throughout our history, the people known as Friends (or Quakers) keep rediscovering an essential and enduring truth: There is one who speaks to our most basic needs and most significant hopes—Christ Jesus the Lord. Both individually and communally, we are learning to know and follow the Voice that guides us in the way we should go. Together, we seek to understand and obey that truth which sets us free. As a people, we share in the experience of that powerful life which makes all things new. Maybe you are searching for an authentic and transforming faith and community to call home—if so, come in and join us as we seek to know and follow Christ.

Our Mission

Friends United Meeting commits itself to energize and equip Friends through the power of the Holy Spirit to gather people into fellowships where Jesus Christ is known, loved, and obeyed as Teacher and Lord.
