The Light Within is the fundamental and immediate experience for Friends. It is that which guides each of us in our everyday lives and brings us together as a community of faith. It is, most importantly, our direct and unmediated experience in the Divine.

We at Downingtown Friends Meeting belong to the Religious Society of Friends (new keywords), also known as Quakers. We strive to be a loving, nurturing religious community. Rooted in Christianity, we welcome individuals from all religious backgrounds. We believe that each of us has access to the Divine, and we come to Meeting for Worship to seek that path.

We gather each First Day (Sunday) in silent, expectant waiting at Meeting for Worship in our 200-year-old Meeting House, holding ourselves open to the Light  while reaching for the divine center of our being. We believe that every person can enter directly, without mediation, into an empowering holy communion with God. While Meeting for Worship is largely a period of stillness, Friends may feel a call from the Spirit to speak.

From experience we know that revelation is ongoing. The divine power—which Friends might call the Inner Light, the Spirit of Christ, the Living God, or the Divine Presence—continues to work at guiding, healing, and transforming the world today. It's the nature of this power—love—that challenges us to lead a life centered around simplicity, integrity, equality, stewardship, and peace.
