Very few of Albany Friends Meeting's members and attenders were raised as
Quakers. In our Meeting for Worship are found former Methodists, Catholics ,
Baptists and Jews, as well as many other religious groups and denominations.
Some have had no religious upbringing. Others have previously experienced
religious alienation. Consequently we have a wide range of religious thinking
within our Meeting.
Albany Friends Meeting invites and welcomes all seekers of the Light to participate
in the life of our Meeting. We are blessed that Meeting members and attenders
come from many religious traditions. We honor both Christian and Universalist
Friends. We value both liberal and orthodox religious practitioners. We treasure
both reasoned and intuitive religious insight. We respect both intellectual and
mystical approaches to truth. Approved 2/14/93
