"Coincidence is God's way of remaining anonymous." - Albert Eistein

How am I aware of the spirit at work in the activities and experience of my daily life?

Public

Amanda Gorman in her poem for Biden's inauguration, says that there is always light if only we are breave enough to see it. If only we are brave enough to be it. Are we being brave enought to be the light?

How do I listen and speak from a place of peace and love?

Remember that peace, hope and love lives deep in our hearts. How do I share this out into the world?

Public

After the election, will I rest my soul in the beauty of nature?

How are you called to action in response to the Quaker Urgent Call?

How do we live into our rough days, seeing them as opportunities for growth?

As we deal with loss, are we grateful for the days God has given us and our loved ones?

How do I search for the stillness of spirit in the noise of everyday life?

How are you present and supportive of those around you who are experiencing new beginnings? How are you open to new beginnings?

How can we receive with resolute love, even while we may be struggling with fear, anger, apathy or hate?
