11am Meeting for Worship

Monday, May 27

10am Stone Soup Quilting, Quilt Studio


Sunday, May 26th Today we invite you to participate in unprogrammed worship, with the expectation that God’s presence will be evident in the silence. As we quiet our spirits, we often “hear”/sense God. As you become aware of a message from God, you are invited to share that message with others gathered this morning.

Requesting prayer for Sierra-Cascades Yearly Meeting of Friends, which is meeting in business until 4pm today before returning home. This is our second annual meeting with very important decisions to make, so pray for us!

Sewing and Quilting Rummage Sale June 8, 2019, 9am -3pm at 7739 25th Ave. NE, Seattle. There will be fabric, fabric, fabric, patterns and books, notions and GRAB BAGS! Proceeds will benefit the Stone Soup Quilting Ministry of North Seattle Friends Church, providing quilts as gifts of comfort to long-term cancer patients of Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

Quaker Queries

Friends have developed the Queries to assist us to consider prayerfully the true source of spiritual strength and the extent to which the conduct of our lives gives witness to our Christian faith.

In using these Queries, meetings and individuals should be aware that our standards of conduct do not derive from an outward set of rules but rather from the life and teachings of Jesus as recorded in the New Testament, from the examples offered by the spiritual experiences and lives of those who have preceded us, and from our own encounters with that inward revelation through which “the way, the truth, and the life” seek expression today.
Here are queries to ponder:
 
Home and Family

Do you make your home a place of friendliness, refreshment, and peace, where God becomes more real to those who live there and to all who visit there?

Is worship a daily part of your personal and family life?
 
These particular queries are from the New England Yearly Meeting.

Peace Through Pieces (PTP) is a ministry of North Seattle Friends Church. Working with Trauma Healing and Reconciliation Services of Burundi, PTP teaches sewing and quiltmaking as trauma healing and economic development for women who have survived sexual violence and genocidal conflict. Products for sale in the back of the worship room were made by the PTP trained women. Purchases benefit these women and Peace Through Pieces.
