 Query for the Fourth Month – Care for the Meeting

  • Do we help each other to live with integrity and contribute that integrity to the life of our Meeting?
  • How does our Meeting learn of members’ needs and offer its assistance?
  • How does our Meeting nurture members in all stages of life?
  • How does our Meeting welcome those new to Friends and integrate them into our community?
  • When a member’s conduct or manner of living gives cause for concern, how does the Meeting respond?
  • Am I ready both to offer and to accept Meeting assistance when needed?
  • Do I treat adults and children alike with respect and without condescension?
  • What opportunities have I taken to know, work and worship with Friends in the larger spiritual communities we share?
