meetings

Tradition at Woodbrooke

I'm staying at Woodbrooke this weekend.
They have a meeting for worship every day between 8:30 and 9:00, to which I
went this morning.

I was struck by how traditional it is. I didn't know any of the other
people attending, we didn't greet each other in any way (apart from a
handshake from the door keeper) but it seemed completely familiar. And
apart from changes in furniture or dress, it would have been the same for
many Quakers over the years.
