Testimony of Community
“Let your life speak”. The life of a Quaker meeting also speaks: by giving practical support for members and attenders in need; encouraging, guiding, and eldering Friends with love in discernment or in following leadings; welcoming new seekers.
Being part of a community requires us to practice compassion and patience. It’s not always easy.
- How do we foster love, truth, and harmony within our meeting community?
- How do we as individuals support the spiritual health of the meeting?
- How do we as a community support the spiritual health of individual members and attenders?
