Seoul Monthly Meeting hosted the 2005 Asia/Western Pacific Section Biannual Gathering of Quakers - Opening Event, Nov. 3, Pocheon, Gyeonggi-do
Let the guest sojourning here know that in this meeting our life is simple. What we cannot afford we do not offer, but what good cheer we can give...we give gladly.
We make no strife for appearance sake.
Know also, friend, that we live a life of labor, therefore, if at times we separate ourselves from you, do you occupy yourself accordingly to your heart's desire.
We will not defer to you in opinion or ask you to defer to us. What you think you shall say, if you wish, without giving offense. What we think, we also say, believing that truth has many aspects, and that love is large enough to encompass them all.
So, while you tarry here with us we would have you enjoy the blessing of a home, health, love and freedom, and we pray that you may find the final blessing of life.
We meet every Sunday at 11:00 am
