Frederick Friends Meeting follows a practice, common to many meetings, of contemplating a different set of queries each month. Queries are questions used among Quakers to uncover how our faith is being lived out, both individually and as a community.
Queries for August: Education and Spiritual Development
Do I strive to develop my physical, emotional, and mental capacities toward reaching my divinely given potential?
Do I make time for meditation, prayer, and worship?
What efforts are we making to be better acquainted with Quaker faith and practices and the beliefs of other faiths?
How do we prepare ourselves and our children to play active roles in a changing world?
