Friends Meeting at Buck Hill Falls

July 3, 2016 from 9:30 am until 10:00 am

|Recurring Event (See all)
Weekly on the same day until September 4, 2016

When Quakers founded Buck Hill Falls in 1901, they saw its idyllic natural environment as a perfect setting for their spiritual practices and formation. Over the past hundred years, f(F)riends have shared Sunday morning worship at Buck Hill in the summer when many families are in residence, first in the Inn, and then in various locales around the community. Most recently, Buck Hillers have enjoyed worship in several of the beautiful outdoor settings our community provides.

Compared to those early days, today there are many fewer Quakers among Buck Hill residents. However, these days many people appreciate practices such as meditation and mindfulness that are closely related to Quaker worship. Whether you use this half hour for Quaker worship, for meditation, or simply for introspection, who among us would not benefit from 30 minutes of quiet contemplation of the beautiful landscape at Buck Hill?

We invite you to join us for Friends Meeting Sunday mornings in July and August by the water at Paiste Pond, 9:30-10am. Light refreshments to follow. Bring your own chair. For questions, contact Rebecca Heider on (267) 349-7543 or rebeccaheider@gmail.com.
