(pym) A Quaker Meeting For Worship

BY DOUGLAS STEERE

Only three rows of "facing benches," each of the back two being slightly elevated above the one in front of it. In former days, as in many Meetings still, certain older Friends and some "weighty" Friends who have often had insights to share with the group sat in these benches facing the Meeting."
