Query for the Tenth Month – Ministry of Outreach

  • How does our meeting communicate Friends’ presence and principles to the wider community?

  • How does our meeting join with other faith communities in worship, in spiritual dialogue, and in social action?

  • What are we doing to invite persons to attend our meetings for worship, to welcome them when they come, to listen sensitively to their needs and hesitations, and to encourage their continued attendance?

  • How do I share my spiritual life and experience with others?

  • Does my life as a Friend attract others to our religious society?

  • What opportunities have I taken to worship with people from other religious and

    cultural backgrounds and work with them on common concerns?
