This item is just collecting different language people use for talking about what happens during silent worship.

Gathered worship, really diverse


(RantWoman notes in passing that the whole question of a Quaker pagan ritual seems so modernist, so separated from the early Quakers' efforts to free themselves of the pagan associations of the common English-language names for the days of the week and the months. Not to mention the whole giant historical question of graphing Christian forms and terminology onto other festivals and other events deeply rooted in pagan traditions. RantWoman has NO clear thoughts about what that means for people of the current century so maybe there is just more to be written at some point.)
