Welcome To Doylestown Friends Meeting!

doylestownfriends_logoThe central belief of Quakers is that there is a spark of the Divine in every person. From that concept flows the traditional Quaker concerns for nonviolent conflict resolution, respect for each human being, and the belief in everyone’s ability to have a direct, living relationship with the Divine.

At Doylestown Friends we meet for worship on Sunday mornings in the Meeting House at 95 E. Oakland Avenue in Doylestown, PA. We seek to be receptive to the Spirit within ourselves and others. We are an open and inclusive community, and guests are welcome.

  • Meeting For Worship: 10 AM Sunday at the Meetinghouse AND via Zoom
  • Children’s Program: 10:15 AM Sunday (Currently available 10-11 AM at Burpee Park)
  • Meeting For Business: 11:20 AM Second Sunday (Zoom Access Available)

STATEMENT ON BLACK LIVES MATTER

 
We, the members of Doylestown Friends Meeting, acknowledge that we are a largely
Euro-American white community and we are committed to interrupting the pattern of
white privilege we inherited. We stand in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter
movement and embrace the diversity of all peoples and will act to break down
institutional racism.
 

STATEMENT ON THE WAR IN UKRAINE

We advocate for the US, its allies and the United Nations to make avoidance of nuclear conflict its primary goal, to pursue all possible avenues towards a diplomatic solution to the Ukrainian conflict and to help both Russia and Ukraine reach an immediate cease-fire. We ask the US government and military representatives to refrain from statements that assert or imply that the use of aid to Ukraine can be a means to fight a war by proxy with Russia, as this will bring us closer to a nuclear war. We ask that the US military and government refrain from the use of good versus evil as a template to engage in war. Such rhetoric can lead to unrelenting escalation of a conflict on both sides with the dehumanization and disregard of civilian populations resulting in war crimes such as death camps and indiscriminate bombing. War is a failure of humanity. It yields only death and unspeakable horror in its execution and multi-generational torment in its aftermath. War never provides lasting Peace. War is not the answer.
