Reading of Queries

Public ContentAnyone can view this post

Since the beginning of Quakerism in the seventeenth century, Quakers have used Advices and Queries (questions for reflection) as a way that we help each other to live our Quaker values.  Once a month during a meeting for worship one or two queries are read.  The query for March was:

1. Are meetings for worship and business held in expectant waiting for divine guidance? Are we regular and punctual in attendance? Are we willing and faithful in the service of our meeting and in financial support of its activities?

The query for April was:

2. Do we make opportunity in our daily lives for communion with God and the opening of our hearts to an awareness of the Christ Within?  Are we thankful for each day as an opportunity for a new adventure of life with God?
