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 December 2015: Simplicity

  • What in my present life most distracts me from God?
  • How well do the ways in which I choose to use my time, my possessions, my money, and my energy reflect my most deeply held values?
  • What am I ready to release so that I can give my attention to what matters most?
