An excerpt from Julie Shaull's essay, "Leadings, Leanings and Other Voices," which appeared in the January 1999 issue of Friends Journal, served as the passage for meeting for worship on November 6:
God doesn’t usually tell us what to do in so many words. But it’s amazing how the world offers nudges once we ask! Suddenly, books open to significant passages. Being with a child brings an awareness. Chance events reveal opportunities to give our gifts or satisfy our needs. Messages may come during dreams, meditation, or prayer, in the form of images, words, or feelings in our bodies. Or we may wake up one morning with that feeling of knowing. We find God by paying attention to the present moment.
