A Typical Quaker?
We like to think that there is no such thing as a typical Quaker. At Midlothian Friends Meeting, we have people from all walks of life, from all religious backgrounds and beliefs. Some of us were born and raised in other religions, but have found a new home in Quakerism. In fact, most of us were not born Quakers; we became 'convinced' Friends.
At Midlothian Meeting, we practice acceptance of individuals from different backgrounds and beliefs. We believe that the Divine presence is continually revealed and available to all people; no one group holds a lock on the truth. Consequently, we have found that people who might be uncomfortable in other settings have found a home at Midlothian Friends.
