Friends' way of worship "evokes from deep within us at once an affirmation and a celebration, an affirmation of the reality of that Light which illumines the spiritual longing of humanity, and a celebration of the continual resurrection within us of the springs of hope and love; a sense that each of us is, if we will, a channel for a power that is both within and beyond us." (Lorna M. Marsden, 1986, from Philadelphia Yearly Meeting Faith and Practice)

Are we open to this power in our lives, allowing ourselves to be a channel of Light, Love and Community in a world where division and loneliness act as a fog to keep us from truly knowing one another?
