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

What's New

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.

Using a forge and anvils, the same team that held the gun buyback in Norwalk in November met to transform parts of guns into gardening tools. The team included members of the Wilton Quaker Meeting celebrating Sunday's World Quaker Day and members of Swords Into Plowshares Northeast.  The tools will be distributed to community gardening programs including at Norwalk's Fodor Farm.

Wilton Quakers are celebrating World Quaker Day on October 4, 2020. The theme this year is: ‘What does it mean to be a Quaker today? Living a Faithful Life in a Changing World’.

We are completing our renovation of Helen Gander Hall (HGH formerly the Annex). 

Our objective was to renovate HGH to meet the standards required by Connecticut Friends School, the state of CT for preschools, fix any current issues with HGH, and extend the useful life of the building.

We have made the building more environment friendly by replacing the roof, increasing insulation, converting to a more efficient HVAC system, and made other modifications to be more friendly to the CFS pre-school, as well as other prospective tenants.

Wilton Quaker Meeting is holding Meeting For Worship using Zoom during the COVID-19 Pandemic.

Dear Friends,

      Given the escalating COVID-19 virus situation, we have made some difficult decisions to balance our ability to worship as a community with the danger represented by even a few of us gathering to worship in person.  There is no guarantee that a person without symptoms is actually free of the virus, so we have chosen to err on the side of caution, especially given that many members of our Meeting are in age and health groups that pose extra risk. 

Public

Worship with us!
