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. 

The rhetoric of hate we are experiencing is only fueling the violence in our world. We need to express our love for the millions of refugees who are fleeing violence, both natural and man made.

“We are called to obedient love even though we may not be feeling very loving. Often it is through the performance of loving acts that loving feelings can be built up in us. We may start with small, perhaps very tiny steps. It is only as we begin to allow Christ’s love to act in and through us that it can become a part of us.”

Sandra Lee Cronk, c. 1983

Sandra Lee Cronk (1942-2000) was a Quaker author, spiritual nurturer, teacher, and historian of religions. For ten years, she taught at Pendle Hill. In 1990, she became a founding member of the School of the Spirit. She was a member of Princeton, NJ Monthly Meeting.

WQM participates in the Monthly Meeting Partners Project

Wilton Quaker Meeting was selected by New York Yearly Meeting as one of the first two monthly meetings in NYYM to participate in the Monthly Meeting Partners Project, a colaboration with New England Yearly Meeting.

The heart of the project is intensive work with six monthly meetings or worship groups over the next three years as we seek new ways to nurture multigenerational community life and worship and best support the spiritual lives of children and youth.
