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 February 2016: Vocal Ministry and Listening

  • How do I discern when to speak and when not to speak, both in Meeting and elsewhere?
  • How do we encourage Friends to allow ample time to absorb the previous message before speaking?
  • How do I practice listening to the Truth which may be revealed by others?
  • How have I been changed by deeply listening to another, to God, and to nature?
