Quaker Worship: Practice and Experience
In worship, "Friends seek communion with that of God within, which some Friends call the Living Christ, the Teacher with whom each one has a relationship." Pacific Yearly Meeting, Faith and Practice, 2001

What do we do in meeting for worship? How do we seek communion with that of God within? Are there practices that make this communion more likely or deeper? Is there guidance that can be offered to newcomers or to seasoned Friends looking for a deeper experience of worship?
