Agenda for our Second Sunday Meeting on November 8, 2020
If you were unable to attend our last gathering please take a look at the Report from our October 11, 2020 gathering by clicking on the link at the bottom of this page.
Next month, on November 8, we will work with the Advices and Queries about Harmony with Creation, finishing our look at the first part of the testimony of Stewardship, with the Advices and Queries that are to Harmony with the Creation (pp 112-113.)
We know that “Advices and Queries” are two of many practices that are as old as the emergence of Gospel Order in Society of Friends; provided to local and monthly meetings from the quarterly meetings and annual sessions, they were often written in a yearly cycle because when finished and we would begin, again, Friends will more experience and knowledge than they did the last time through. Advices and Queries are seen as ongoing introspection and re-introspection seeking maturation and perfection of our individual and corporate conditions.
Early Friends brought written responses to the gatherings of their Quarterly Meetings and Annual Sessions, working them over in advance as we, today, write our State of the Society Reports.
For next month please take some time to read through the statements of the Advices and the questions of the Queries. (pp 111 – 112)
Can you jot down some ways we – as individuals and as a meeting – are we fulfilling the practices described in the Advices?
What is the Light of the Queries showing us needs to be done?
