Query for June

How do I distinguish between divine leadings and my own needs and desires?

Peace & Social Concerns Forum: "Maintaining Spiritual Connection while in Pursuit of Service."

October 24, 2021

How do we maintain and renew our connection with Spirit in our work life? Sometimes it's hard to know what we are being led to do in situations that are difficult or involve conflict with other people or our values.

Quakers have long used discernment within the community of worship to deal with decision-making, seeking guidance, and supporting one another. Sometimes we need support, to be held in the Light by others, to be heard, to be understood, to help with our discernment. Even those who don’t feel they need support benefit from supporting others’ work.

On October 24th, we will have a forum to consider what participating in a mutual support group might involve and develop a plan for ongoing mutual support groups for activism, professional life, or other aspects of our work in the world.

Forums work better when people attend in person:

  • No more than two individuals or one family group per bench.
  • Masks required for those who are not vaccinated.
  • Masks highly recommended for those who are.

If you cannot attend in person, then please join us by Zoom:
