Are you a plant person?
Our former tenant NEST left three plants that we would like to see adopted. Please see the plants, now in Dove’s office, if you’d like consider adopting.

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:
 
Spiritual Life
Do you live in thankful awareness of God’s constant presence in your life?
Are you sensitive and obedient to leadings of the Holy Spirit?
Do you seek to follow Jesus, who shows us the way?
Do you nurture your spiritual life with prayer and silent waiting and with regular study of the Bible and other devotional literature?
 
These particular queries are from the New England Yearly Meeting.

Peace through Pieces is a North Seattle Friends Church project that helps women in Burundi recover from intertribal violence by quilting. See and purchase their works at the back of the meeting room.

Do parrots eat carrots? In the foyer there is a binder on whose cover is this poem, that when published earned $1 for a 10-year-old who today belongs to North Seattle Friends Church. The binder holds creative expression by our people.
