This online worship group gathers across geographies and Quaker communities. Initiated by Mey Hasbrook in response to the Covid-19 pandemic during mid-March 2020, Friends have found encouragement in meeting with one another. On April 11th, co-conveners worshiped together for discernment about how to continue. We now are using the name “Open Heart Worship Group”, which 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
