May Queries: Peace and Social Concerns

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.

May: Peace and Social Concerns

  • How does my life reflect “the virtue of that life and power which takes away the occasion of all war”?        
  • Where hatred, division, and strife exist, how can I be an instrument of reconciliation and love?
  • As I work for peace, am I nourished by peace within myself and within the meeting?
  • How have I expressed my faith in action? How are my actions grounded in my faith?
