Query for First Month -- Meeting for Worship

  • Are our meetings for worship held in stilled, expectant waiting upon God?
  • As we worship is there a living silence in which we are drawn together by the power of God in our midst?
  • Is the spirit of our worship together one that nurtures all worshipers?
  • How does our Meeting respond when the vocal ministry seems inappropriate, or when the meeting for worship is consistently not gathered?
  • Do I faithfully attend meeting with heart and mind prepared for worship, clear of any predetermination to speak or not to speak, and expecting that worship will be a source of strength and guidance?
  • Does worship deepen my relationship with God, increase my faithfulness, and refresh and renew my daily life, both inwardly and in my relationship with others?
  • Have I experienced in worship that direct leading to listen or to speak, and have I been faithful to my own experience?
