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. 25 was chosen:
A long-term relationship brings tensions as well as fulfilment. If your relationship with your partner is under strain, seek help in understanding the other’s point of view and in exploring your own feelings, which may be powerful and destructive. Consider the wishes and feelings of any children involved, and remember their enduring need for love and security. Seek God’s guidance. If you undergo the distress of separation or divorce, try to maintain some compassionate communication so that arrangements can be made with the minimum of bitterness.
