Wrightstown Friends Meeting
ALL ARE WELCOME
Please join us each Sunday at 10:00 am for Meeting for Worship.
Our service consists of silent, “expectant waiting” for spiritual guidance in our lives. Divine “leadings” may come to anyone at any time, and by sharing these messages we may help to guide one another.
Quakers (we also call ourselves “Friends”) remain open to new revelations of truth through “that of God in everyone”. Though we have no set doctrine or creed, instead we have queries (probing questions) that help guide our thoughts and actions. In addition, there are testimonies of our witness to common values acted out in the world. Each Quaker searches for how these guides can be best expressed in his or her own life.
As a group, we discover that listening to and seeking God’s will leads to:
Peace – Seeking justice and healing for all people; taking away the causes of war in the way we live.
Integrity – Acting on what we believe, speaking the truth, and doing what we say we will do.
Simplicity: Choosing a well-balanced and unhurried lifestyle with priorities based on our values, and letting unnecessary clutter fall away.
Equality – Treating everyone as equally precious to God, recognizing that all of us have gifts to share.
Community – Supporting one another in our faith journeys, and also in times of joy and sorrow; sharing with and caring for each other.
Stewardship – Valuing and respecting all creation; using only our fair share of the earth’s resources, and working for policies that protect our planet.
While attempting to live these testimonies, we sometimes don’t hear or follow them with Divine Guidance. When we fall short, Quakers are supportive with themselves and ready to recommit and to continue to endeavor. Being in community with other Friends, helps us all to be faithful.
March 30, 10 a.m. Peace and Service: Earth Quaker Action Team. Fallsoington Meeting. Jonathan Snipes will provide an informative and interactive presentation on EQAT. The organization will have done a civil action on the prevention of the XL Pipeline and Jonathan will talk about that experience along with the others he has had involving fighting for the environment. Let’s learn more and see how we can be supportive of our beloved member and of the Quaker organization dedicated to preserving the planet.
March 9, 23 & 30th and April 13th, 2-3:30pm, Prayer Course ~ Living A Prayerful Life, developed by Peter Lang of Summit Chatham MM specifically with Friends in mind. For George Fox and early Friends prayer was described as inward retirement, “waiting upon the Lord”. In our modern, high-tech, busy world it often appears that prayer and living have come to be widely separated.
