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.
How might we support each other as we find peaceful and persistent responses to actions that exclude and judge?
In what ways do we, as Quakers, hold ourselves and the Other in the Light when our disagreements seem insurmountable?
How do we find common ground as we listen to those with whom we disagree?
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.
