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. 

“How to remain whole in the midst of the distractions of life; how to remain balanced, no matter what centrifugal forces tend to pull one off center; how to remain strong no matter what shocks come in at the periphery and tend to crack the hub of the wheel.

What is the answer? There is no easy answer, no complete answer. I have only clues, shells from the sea. The bare beauty of the Channelled Whelk (a sea snail) tells me that one answer, and perhaps a first, is in simplification of life, in cutting out some of the distractions. But how? Total retirement is not possible. I cannot shed my responsibilities. I cannot permanently inhabit a desert island. I cannot be a nun in the midst of family life. I would not want to be. The solution for me, surely, is neither in total renunciation of the world nor in total acceptance of it. I must find a balance somewhere or an alternating rhythm between the two extremes; a swinging of the pendulum between solitude and communion, between retreat and return. In my periods of retreat, perhaps I can learn something to carry back into my worldly life. I can at least practice the simplification of outward life as a beginning. I can follow this clue and see where it leads. Here, in beach living, I can try."

Anne Morrow Lindbergh, “Gift from the Sea.”

What's New

Signature Image: 


In December 2017 Wilton Monthly Meeting officially changed its name to Wilton Quaker Meeting.

We wanted to emphasize our Quaker roots. It is by our Quaker name that most people outside the Religious Society of Friends know us.

We were also getting a little tired of explaining to seekers that we really meet every week for worship and only monthly for business.

Please join us any Sunday at 10:00 am for worship. We are family friendly so bring the kids! 


Worship at Wilton Quaker Meeting

If you have never before attended an unprogrammed Friends (Quaker) meeting for worship, your first meeting may surprise you . . . 


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.

The First Day School Committee and Wilton Quaker Meeting are delighted to let you know that we are offering a new place for children, appropriately, in the heart of meeting for worship.

Any children attending Meeting or First Day School (Sunday School) can now choose to sit on a rug on the floor in front of the fireplace. Other children, as well as one friendly adult, will be there too! 


Worship with us!
