Worship is the very heart of the Quaker way. Friends' unique manner of responding to the Divine power within us all is an amazing community contemplation. It is direct, simple, always contemporary and transformative. More and more newcomers are discovering it and looking to the Society of Friends as a spiritual path that speaks to their seeking. At the same time many Quakers themselves want richer spiritual refreshment to strengthen and nourish them to face the challenges and changing consciousness of our times.
Journeying the Heartlands aims to help Quakers re-examine and re-experience the range of spiritual practices embedded in the unity of our worship. An account of a Meeting in action is followed by eight sections that explore centring down, prayer, waiting in the Light, ministry, leadings and creating community. The voices are those of participants in The Kindlers' programmes. This booklet will prove a lively stimulus for discussion but, best of all, will deepen experience when put into use.
