  • At some point, as new Quakers engaging in corporate waiting worship, we come to a point where we stop trying to connect, we stop trying to worship, and we just are. We relax into the experience of worship in its complete, connected wholeness. We fall into worship, just like that. – Liz Oppenheimer
