A Query to Consider
Quakers maintain a tradition of asking probing questions about faith, life, family, and community. This month's query comes from Paul Loomis, a member of the Worship and Ministry committee. 
  • Have you experienced the empty nest; that is, have your children grown up and left home? 
  • What do you remember about it? 
  • Do you have thoughts or recollections about your own leaving-home experience?
