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. 10 was chosen:
Come regularly to meeting for worship even when you are angry, depressed, tired or spiritually cold. In the silence ask for and accept the prayerful support of others joined with you in worship. Try to find a spiritual wholeness which encompasses suffering as well as thankfulness and joy. Prayer, springing from a deep place in the heart, may bring healing and unity as nothing else can. Let meeting for worship nourish your whole life.
