Advices and Queries

Friends do not have a creed but we do have a set of spiritual Queries which help us individually and as communities to consider our spiritual condition. We also have Advices, based on the spiritual wisdom gleaned over the years. Here is a sample. We will post a new ones from time to time. 

All are especially cautioned against any harshness of tone or manner when administering counsel or reproof, either privately or in meetings. Friends should speak truth with love, remembering that if they would do God’s work, they must abide in God’s love. Even a seeming harshness may check the beginnings of true repentance, and a lack of sympathy may cause harm where only good was intended. 

Are love and unity fostered among us? If differences arise, do we endeavor to reconcile them in a spirit of love and truth? Are we careful not to manipulate and exploit one another? Do we avoid talebearing, and are we careful of the reputation of others?

On July 15, 2017, we had our first celebration of our 75-year anniversary. We had a wonderful party that included music, poetry, food, dancing, yoga, and a talk on the history of the Meeting. We were very happy to be joined in the celebration by several old friends. Stephanie Kim of the News Times reported on the event.  A copy of the history and a link to the News Times article complete with pictures may be accessed by clicking on the title of this news article and clicking the resulting links at the bottom of the page.
