Friendly Business

FRIENDLY BUSINESS

FRIENDS HAVE A UNIQUE WAY OF DOING BUSINESS ROOTED IN ATTENTIVENESS AND IN LISTENING TO THE PROMPTINGS OF THE SPIRIT.

"WHENEVER WE REMEMBER THAT WE ARE IN THE PRESENCE OF GOD, TRANSFORMATION IS POSSIBLE.  EVERY TASK, NO MATTER HOW MUNDANE, BECOMES AN ACT OF WORSHIP, A WORD OF PRAISE OFFERED TO GOD. THIS IS THE BASIS FOR QUAKER BUSINESS PRACTICE.  WE CALL IT 'MEETING FOR WORSHIP WITH ATTENTION TO BUSINESS' BECAUSE IT IS GROUNDED IN AN AWARENESS OF GOD'S PRESENCE.
