ADVICES AND QUERIES
(Contained within Quaker Faith and Practice)
Price: £0.00 Free
Advices and Queries are an important reminder of the insights of the Society. Advices and Queries are not a call to increased activity by each individual Friend but a reminder of the insights of the Society. Within the community there is a diversity of gifts. We are all therefore asked to consider how far the advices and queries affect us personally and where our own service lies.

TWELVE QUAKERS AND....WORSHIP
ISBN: 0 954345924
What is worship? It is our response to an awareness of God. The worship of Quakers is simple, waiting together in the silence and stillness. What is seen as important is the spirit in which you live and how worship helps you to help others. Seeking after God is not to escape from the world but to find the power to heal it.
Twelve Friends write of their experience of worship. These contributions are not religious essays but rather recordings that have the authentic voice of personal experience based within the worshipping community. The meeting for worship is at the heart of the Quaker way: all else is an outcome of that experience. Those wondering about the Quaker way, and what motivates its followers, should find these twelve honest accounts helpful.
The "Twelve Quakers and..." series now covers 7 titles: God, Faith, Pacifism, Jesus, Simplicity, Evil and Equality.
