Quakers and the Still, Small Voice

When we sit in silence on Sunday morning, Quakers often like to say that we’re “listening.” But what does that still small voice sound like?

  1. I really needed the reminder Jay O’Hara gives at the 5 minute mark: that putting this still small voice at the center looks like not doing anything (I emphasize ANYTHING) until you are led. I have experienced that before but haven’t been hanging out in that space lately. I have actually been doing things. Thanks, Jon Watts.

  2. Thanks, Jon, and all the contributors. This video is a really strong and clear reflection on the inner voice, Quaker understandings of discernment and the inward teacher. I loved it!

  3. I appreciate listening to the experiences of fellow Friends in this video. I have attended more than 1000 Quaker Meeting for Worships and have never experienced hearing a still small voice. (nor a noisy loud voice) Any suggestions?

  4. I enjoyed listening to the small blips about spirit listening. It’s very powerful and incisive as well.
