Query for Seventh Month
7. Social Responsibility and Witness
How does our Meeting work:
- to overcome social, legal, economic, and political injustices, locally and in the wider world?
- for the funding of community services that does not rely on gaming income?
Does our Meeting serve the community through action on concerns for civic improvement? What actions are we taking to assure everyone equal access to education, health care, legal services, housing, and employment as well as equal opportunities in business and in the professions?
When a member has lifted up a concern, how does our Meeting respond?
Does our Meeting encourage those seeking clearness for their convictions of conscience to hold up such convictions with prayerful openness to the Light?
Am I mindful of how my lifestyle and my investments can contribute to the improvement of the human condition, or to the exploitation of others?
Am I open to seeking clearness on matters of conscience and to assisting others in doing so? How do I respond and support one who acts out of a clear leading when I am under the weight of another?
What am I doing to work for the betterment of my community to assure the maintenance of effective public services which do not rely on funding from gaming?
Do I fulfill my civic responsibilities when they do not conflict with divine leadings?
