"When you see a worthy person, endeavor to emulate him. When you see an unworthy person, then examine your inner self." - Confucius


Friends are reminded that our practice is to have Meeting for Business on the THIRD Sunday of July, and omit a Meeting for Business during August. We will resume our Second Sunday Meeting for Business Schedule in September.

Spiritual Formation - Do you seek an opening to the Spirit? Do you sit in meeting in anticipation of the "still small voice", yet it rarely or never comes? Or are you ready to deepen your connection to the Inner Light? If the answer is yes to any of these questions, FMW's Spiritual Formation Group may be of interest to you. The Spiritual Formation Groups were formed to nurture and strengthen your connection to the Inner Light on personal, meeting, and community levels. For more information, please contact John Bluedorn at
