Swanage Meeting has an average of 7-10 attending every 2nd & Last Sunday in the Month.
Quakers use a book entitled Quaker Faith & Practice. ‘The book’s great strength is that it achieves its purpose of expressing the ‘soul’ of the Quakers…’ It includes Advices and Queries; a section that is also published in its own right and is given out freely. We try to choose one of the 42 Advices and Queries each week to ponder upon. This week, No. 15 was chosen:
Do you take part as often as you can in meetings for church affairs? Are you familiar enough with our church government to contribute to its disciplined processes? Do you consider difficult questions with an informed mind as well as a generous and loving spirit? Are you prepared to let your insights and personal wishes take their place alongside those of others or be set aside as the meeting seeks the right way forward? If you cannot attend, uphold the meeting prayerfully.
