Quaker Cornerstones @ Fresh Pond Meeting
Jul 22 @ 11:15 am – 11:30 am
This year 2017/18 we will use Advices and Queries from New England Yearly Meeting’s Faith and Practice (our book of Quaker procedures and stories of our faith)  as a guide for reflection. As we read the Queries, it is important to hear ‘what comes up for you as we read them.’  We have established Cornerstones to keep Quaker values and beliefs present in our lives.  We invite all members, attenders and visitors to Cornerstones.  Please click on the link below to read the Advices and Queries we will explore.

 

Meeting for Business @ Fresh Pond Meeting
Jul 22 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

Our meeting for business is conducted in a manner similar to our worship. We listen carefully for God’s guidance — with mutual care and regard for one another’s wisdom. Ultimately, Quaker decision-making is Spirit-led, for together we seek unity with God’s will for the meeting. The co-clerks are the appointed servant leaders of our meeting.

Women’s Group @ Fresh Pond Meeting
Jul 22 @ 11:30 am – 1:00 pm

All women are welcome. In Women’s Group we wish to create a sacred space for an intimate sharing of our spiritual journeys. Our journeys reflect the multiple roles in our lives including daughter, sister, partner, friend, wife, mother and spiritual being. They also include other aspects of our lives such as our work, our fears, our hopes and our understanding of the Spirit. Women’s Group seeks to nurture and support our individual spiritual growth. We listen carefully to each other, pray for each other and hold each other and the group in the Light.
