GPQM Business Meeting Agenda for Sept 17, 2016

Printable agenda

Green Pastures Quarterly Meeting,  September 17,  2016
Meeting for Worship for the Conduct of Business

Our search is for unity, not unanimity.  We consider ourselves to be in unity when our search for Truth is shared; when our listening for God is faithful; …when our love for one another is constant.  A united meeting is not  necessarily all of one mind, but it is all of one heart.

We believe that this unity, transcending apparent differences, springs from God’s empowering love, and that a Meeting, trusting in the leadership of that love and gathered in its spirit, will enjoy unity in its search for truth.
