June 2019 - Queries on Diversity

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.

June: Diversity

How well do I work toward creating a community of different people, rather than a community that just lets different people in?      

Are we willing to be in communion with each other, open to our differences yet secure in the one Spirit that calls us all to be Friends?

Do I seek out and listen to perspectives that promote equal access, inclusion, and welcome for people of all cultures and backgrounds?

To learn more about queries and how Friends use them in the practice of their faith, please see Baltimore Yearly Meeting’s Faith and Practice.
