Public ContentAnyone can view this post

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?
