Advices and Queries

Friends do not have a creed but we do have a set of spiritual Queries which help us individually and as communities to consider our spiritual condition. We also have Advices, based on the spiritual wisdom gleaned over the years. Here is a sample. We will post a new ones from time to time. 

We are not for Names, nor Men, nor Titles of Government, nor are we for this Party, nor against the other, because of its Name and Pretence; but we are for Justice and Mercy, and Truth and Peace, and true Freedom, that these may be exalted in our Nation.

~ Edward Burrough, 1634-1663

The aim of learning, whether it be in a school or at home, is to make whatever testimonies we live by more of a need than a choice…. So that it becomes unthinkable not to serve others. So that it becomes unthinkable not to consider all humans part of the same family. So that a Schweitzerian “reverence for life” becomes a need rather than a self-conscious choice. Then, perhaps, some of our testimonies may have more meaning

– Richard L Eldridge, 1984

This is a Gun Buyback project that will get more guns off the street and out of homes where they are no longer wanted. We will use a forge to transform the gun and rifle parts into gardening tools!  That's as close as you can get to "Swords into Plowshares!"  We think this is inspiring and symbolic to transform a weapon of death into a tool of life.  It will also symbolize the transformation that is possible if Americans step back from the heated gun debate and try to listen to each other.

Would you like to become a conflict resolution workshop facilitator?

The Alternatives to Violence Project is seeking facilitators to fill the growing need for the program.

At the end of May we held our first conflict resolution workshop for the women at the Westchester County Jail. We are looking for help in bringing conflict resolution skills to these women.

Friend Peter Murchison was featured on FCNL Quaker Welcome Center online on Thursday, June 20. Peter is a member of Wilton Quaker Meeting, co-clerk of Ministry and Oversite and an outspoken advocate for gun violence prevention. He engages in this important work in honor of his nephew, Daniel Barden - one of the children who lost their lives in the Sandy Hook elementary school shooting.

Sunday, June 9, Purchase Quarter kicked off a new child-centered worship and fellowship for families. Scarsdale Meeting hosted this first gathering. We met for worship through a Faith & Play story on gifts and singing, played outside together and shared a simple meal. Children and their parents had fun and enjoyed connecting with one another. The next Quarterly Quaker Family Sunday Supper will be hosted by Wilton Meeting at the end of the summer. Families from within and beyond Purchase Quarter are welcome! Join us!
