Community is essential to Quaker practice. We believe that the Light of Christ is present in every heart. However, each individual only perceives some portion of the Truth. By listening together, we receive a more complete understanding of how God is at work among us.
When we gather for worship each week, we share the responsibility of listening for God's guidance. This is the community at work, and it is the central event of our life together.
To get the most from community, we must be authentic with one another. At West Hills Friends, we're committed to being a safe and welcoming place, so all who gather with us may be their true selves.
