Queries on Becoming Quaker

Advices and queries are not a call to increased activity by each individual Friend but a reminder of the insights of the Society.

Within the community there is a diversity of gifts. We are all therefore asked to consider how far the advices and queries affect us personally and where our own service lies.

What we are doing as a Meeting:

Is there opportunity in our Meeting to share the excitement of religious discovery?

Do all people in our Meeting receive our loving care and encouragement to share in the life of our Meeting, and to live as Friends? Do we truly welcome newcomers and include them in our Meeting community?

Personal Query:

Am I ready to offer assistance as part of my religious community serving its members? Am I equally willing to accept graciously the help of others?
