I haven’t had much luck finding other Quakers in SL. When I search on “Religious Society of Friends” I don’t get anything. “Friends”, of course, gets all sorts of things that aren’t related to Quakers. And then “Quaker” does get a few hits. There’s a group (that doesn’t seem to have a way of admitting new members, and which is very small) called Quaker’s sword, but I’m not sure they’re really about being Friends.
In doing a Google search, I found two SL bloggers who mention belonging to a Quaker meeting: Rik Riel and Caliandris Pendragon. I haven’t looked them up yet.
I’ve been wondering about converting my Rockridge model house into a meetinghouse. I already removed the kitchen, so there’s a large room in the back that would be nice for a meeting room. I’d just need to make benches and get pose balls and animations for sitting in worship. Being uninvolved with Friends right now in RL, it seems a little weird to be thinking about, in effect, creating the setting for a worship group in SL, but I do keep being drawn to the idea.

Let me know how/if it goes with meeting house, if that’s okay.
If it’ okay, I’d love to hear how the meeting house goes.
if you’re looking for quakers in the webworld, you couldn’t do any worse than the online meeting for worship – http://worship.quaker.org/ !
Check out the Find Friends at http://fwccamericas.org/ It’ll locate a Friends meeting close to just about anywhere in the US.
Thanks for the leads! Just to be clear, this is a blog for a character in Second Life (“SL”). In Real Life (“RL”) I’m a Quaker who lives near several meetings.
