The Quaker Meeting

The silent stillness & the mist of waiting and listening.
Preparing for the silence of the Quaker Meeting & holding a Friend’s hand.
I look into the mist on the hills above us & the Light of the rising sun breaking through.
May we cherish the silence & not be afraid.
May we know it not empty but full of presence.
May the love at its heart calm our fears.
May we know the gentle touch of a trusting hand.
May we be fully present in the moment.
May we learn to be silent and still.
