Debby Churchman and John Bluedorn at Friends Meeting of Washington will lead a two-session Zoom workshop on the Four Doors to the Meeting for Worship on Tuesday evenings, February 21 and 28, at 7:00 p.m. If you want to deepen your spiritual experience in Meeting for Worship this is a great workshop to attend. William Taber, author of Four Doors to the Meeting for Worship (Pendle Hill Pamphlet #306), grew up in Ohio Yearly Meeting (Conservative), which remained his spiritual home throughout his life. Taber’s gift was centered on his ability to translate spiritual experience into plain language. This pamphlet grew out of his awareness of a need for a more contemporary explanation of “what happens” in a Quaker meeting for worship. He felt that this lack of instruction in method had become an increasing problem as modern Friends moved farther and farther away from the more pervasive Quaker culture, which in earlier generations played such a powerful teaching role, allowing Friends to learn the nuances and spiritual methods of Quakerism through osmosis.
