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:
Social Responsibility

Do you respect the worth of every human being as a child of God?

Do you uphold the right of all persons to justice and human dignity?

Do you endeavor to create political, social, and economic institutions which will sustain and enrich the life of all?

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.
