Friends would say that meeting for worship is central to their spiritual lives - but what is worship? What does 'ministry' mean? How can we talk to each other, sharing our understandings of listening or waiting on God? Meetings can feel shallow, unsatisfying, or deep and transforming? Dare we assess quality and depth?
This booklet is a distillation of experience and reflection collected from meetings and offered back in the form of queries, designed to be taken a few at a time. Those responsible for eldership will find this book helpful in their regular meetings, as they consider how to sustain and support the Quaker community in this core activity.
Queries could also be used more widely in the meeting, perhaps on a queit day or in a listening or study group.
