A Friendly Welcome

We, the Friends of Mullica Hill Meeting, welcome you to our meeting for worship, Sunday School, and other activities. You don’t have to be a Quaker to visit us. Some people visit because they are looking for a religious home, others simply want to find out what Quakers are really like. Often we are visited by people who are doing research on Quakers for a school assignment. Everyone is welcome. We hope that you will find here, as we do, a source of help, strength, wisdom, and peace. We invite you to linger with us after worship and share a brief time of fellowship. You are welcome to take any of our pamphlets that interest you.
If, after attending meeting for worship for a time, you feel attracted to the Religious Society of Friends and wish to join the Meeting, we encourage you to let us know of your interest. We welcome as members any who find themselves in unity with our principles and aspirations.
We are strengthened by your presence and trust that, whether or not you join Friends, you will always find a warm welcome in our Meeting.

August 19   We will continue discussion of the Journal of Samuel Bownas, starting with the 2nd column on page 13.

Samuel Bownas was a Quaker minister who lived from 1676 to 1753. He lived in England, but also traveled widely in the American colonies. He was one of the most widely respected and important Friends ministers of his time. He was asked to write a small volume about the qualifications for the Quaker ministry, which he did. By reading his journal, we are able to see what it took to live and minister faithfully in a time different from our own. Our distance from those times gives us a kind of objectivity as we read his life, and, hopefully, it will help us to see how to live faithfully in our own times.

The text we use is from volume 3 of The Friends Library, copyright 1839. Reprints are available at the meeting house.

 

August 26  We will continue with the Journal of Samuel Bownas.
