In this time of experimentation and innovation, many Quaker communities are exploring hybrid or blended meetings in which some Friends sit in the meeting room while others attend online. Technology-assisted connection has allowed Friends separated by distance, disability, or disease to gather in Spirit with those at the meeting house. However, meetings are working through the variety of technological arrangements that would truly encompass those present online and in-person yet minimize the intrusiveness of equipment during Meeting for Worship, Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business and committee meetings.

Join this conversation to learn from Friends with deep experience of inclusive technology and technique to support Quaker worship and process.
