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. 

Thou who art over us,
Thou who art one of us,
Thou who art, Also within us.
May all see Thee-in me also,
May I prepare the way for Thee,
May I thank Thee for all that shall fall to my lot,
May I also not forget the needs of others,
Keep me in Thy love As Thou wouldest that all should be kept in mine.
May everything in this my being be directed to Thy glory And may I never despair.
For I am under Thy hand, And in Thee is all power and goodness.
Give me a pure heart that I may see Thee, A humble heart that I may hear Thee,
A heart of love that I may serve Thee, A heart of faith that I may abide in Thee.

What's New

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! 

Public

A coalition of community, religious and university organizations, including Wilton Quaker Meeting, has organized to make people aware of the injustice of solitary confinement. 

We are organizing local film screenings and displays of solitary confinement cells.

We generally meet on the 23rd of each month at the Meeting House. Please check our calendar under Events.

We need your help!  Join us.

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.
