Each year LEYM’s Ministry and Nurture Committee prepares a set of queries and readings for the consideration of meetings. The Ministry and Nurture Committee invites each meeting to consider the queries and to develop a written response that describes the insights arrived at during its consideration. Meetings are requested to send this to the clerk of the Ministry and Nurture Committee (LEYMmn at gmail.com) by the end of February. The Ministry and Nurture Committee reviews meetings’ responses during committee time at Representative Meeting in the spring.
As we face ongoing degradation of our planet and the general lack of political will to address this, we ask: What are the connections we experience between earthcare and our traditional Quaker concerns for peace and justice? How do we use spiritual guidance to respond with a sense of abundance and hope?
Book of Advices & Queries
A set of advices and queries drawn up by an ad hoc committee was approved by the yearly meeting in session in July of 2012. It contains a total of 66 queries organized into 16 sections. It also has information on the history and current uses of advices and queries, an overview of the process by which this set was arrived at, and considerations for revising the set in the future. Printed booklets are available from the yearly meeting. The file here is for viewing on a computer.
