Quaker Discussion on 10/15

Next Sunday, October 15th, we will have a Quaker Discussion on queries. We ask ourselves queries at every business meeting and record our answers. Since I’ve been clerk we’ve been through the queries in the draft BYM Faith & Practice twice. Next Sunday, we’ll try to come up with some new ones.

If you’re interested, think about what we need to be questioning ourselves about, and what questions we should be asking. Then come by and join the conversation.
