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. To these ends, the Queries should be read frequently in private devotions and regularly in monthly and quarterly meetings. 

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 two more of the queries to ponder:

Vocations (continued)

Do you respect the value of all useful work, whether paid or unpaid, whether physical or intellectual, whether performed in the home or in the larger community?
Does your daily work use means and serve goals which are consistent with the teachings of Jesus?

These particular queries are from the New England Yearly Meeting of Friends.
More Quaker Queries will be shared here in upcoming weeks.
