The name “Open Heart Worship Group” calls upon us to remember that our worship is rooted in Love:

If I speak in the tongues of mortals and of angels, but do not have love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal. And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. If I give away all my possessions, and if I hand over my body so that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.

I Corinthians 13:1-3

This worship group was initiated by Mey Hasbrook (Sojourning Member, Durham Friends Meeting of Maine; Recorded Member, Kalamazoo Friends Meeting of Michigan) as a response to the pandemic in mid-March 2020. Several participants share in coordination and/or convening.
