Winchester Friends Church
Welcome, Friends!          November 10, 2019          9:15 AM 

To you who are seekers, to you, young and old, who have toiled all night and caught nothing, but who want to launch out into the deeps and let down your nets for a catch — God can be found.  There is a Rock for your souls, a resting place of absolute peace and joy and power and radiance and security.  There is a Divine Center into which your life can slip, a new and absolute orientation in God, a Center where you live with Him and out of which you see all of life through new and radiant vision, tinged yes with new sorrows and pangs, but also with new joys unspeakable and full of glory.
–Quaker author and professor Thomas Kelly, 1941

Choir                                          God, Grant Me to Be Silent                              Brian Lilly, Mary Clark
God, grant me to be silent before You, that I may hear You. 
God, grant me to be at rest in You, that You may work in me. 
God, grant me to be open to You, that You may enter. 
God, grant me to be empty before You, that You may fill me. 
Let me be still, let me be still; let me be still and know You are my God.
–Sir Paul Reeves, Mark Hill,  CCLI 649965
Unprogrammed Worship  —  17th century Friends taught that “Jesus has come to teach His people Himself,” and they made that truth the centerpiece of their lives by spending significant periods of time, individually and in gatherings for worship, to listen to their Inward Teacher and obey what they heard.  If God leads you to speak out of the silence, please request a microphone so all can hear your ministry.
