Friends General Conference (FGC) has just posted online a new Spiritual Deepening Library. It can be accessed at

The site provides materials on the following areas:

  • Silence and Expectant Waiting.
  • The Light, Seed, Christ Working in Us.
  • Friendly Practices.
  • Becoming Paterns and Examples.
  • Living into Wholeness.
  • Aging, Death and Dying.

Are we sensitive to the needs of those around us who may be in less fortunate circumstances? Do we prayerfully consider how we can share one another's burdens when the need arises?
