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 advices adn queries or perhaps a prayer from time to time. 

Prayer for Putting on a Face Mask
Creator God, as I prepare to go out into the world, help me to see the sacramental nature and visible way of living love for my neighbors, as I love myself.
Christ Jesus, since my lips will be covered, uncover my heart that people would see my smile in the crinkles around my eyes.
Since my voice may be muffled, help me to think clearly, not only with my words, but with my actions.
Holy Spirit, as the elastic touches my ears, remind me to listen carefully and caringly to all those I meet. May this simple piece of cloth be shield and banner and may each breath it holds be filled with Your love.
In Your name, and in that love, I pray.
Amen
Rev. Richard Bott, Moderator
Presbyterian Church of Canada

Bloomfield, Conn., and Wallingford, Conn., January 7, 2021 – A month after announcing that Connecticut  Food Bank and Foodshare are in discussions to merge as one statewide organization, the two food banks  announced the launch of three new food distributions in New London, Norwich and Norwalk replicating  Foodshare’s emergency drive-thru food distribution at Rentschler Field in East Hartford.

Wilton Quaker Meeting opposes the construction of the Killingly Energy Center (KEC), a 650 MW electric generating plant fueled by natural gas, whose projected cost is $500 million.  The policy of Connecticut must be critically focused on fully decarbonizing the energy economy, including providing renewable electric power for its residents.

We are selling 15 handmade, organic (naturally!) wreaths to raise money for the Quaker Meeting's peace and service projects. The cost is $25 and we will deliver one to you for free within 30 miles of Wilton CT. Who's in? You can email us at [email protected]. Thanks!

Guns into Gardening Tools from the gun buyback we ran late last year!

We presented a number of gardening tools to Fodor Farm, the Norwalk community garden.

Also, a plaque with 2 of the tools commemorating the transformation of tools of death to those of life and sustenance. That's Dianne Keefe from our Quaker Meeting and Bishop Jim Curry, co-founder of Swords to Plowshares NE.
