Centering Silence & Worship

Guilford College Meetings for Centering Silence

Friends Center Staff will be hosting meetings for “Centering Silence” virtually. These are quiet, meditative meetings held in the manner of Friends (silence) but without the expectation that members in the meeting are Quaker or religious. These are meetings we hold each week on campus and are now holding them online with a diversity of campus members represented. This is a meeting welcome to all members of the Guilford College Community. Follow the links below to join these sessions.

  • Mondays – 1:00-1:30 PM – Zoom Link (link updated)
    • (canceled for 10/05 will resume following Monday)
  • Wednesdays – 8:30-9:00 AM – Zoom Link

Coffee and Conversation with The Director of the Friends Center

This is just an informal opportunity for conversation with students, staff, and faculty. Share what’s on your mind – things that are heavy and serious or whatever you’d like. I’ll be at the same place every week and time throughout the semester. If you show up I will offer a listening ear. If not, I’ll work on email. So please! Come by and say hi! 🙂

  • Mondays 2-3pm at Rachel’s Rose Cottage Patio (or Founders Gazebo if raining)

Opportunities for Meetings for Worship With Quaker Partners

Friendship Friends Virtual Meeting

Location: Greensboro, NC across from College
Quaker Tradition: Unprogrammed, Conservative Quakers

Our meeting for worship is scheduled for 10:15 – noon, on the next three Sundays. The link is the same every time. We allowed some time ahead of 10:30 for folks to join, get comfortable, and check-in as needed. Once the meeting begins, please find the “mute” button (should look like a little microphone somewhere on the edges of the screen as you move your cursor around) and press it so it turns red. With a number of us on, muting background noise becomes essential.
