Query for the Fifth Month 

Nurturing Our Community: Religious Education in the Home and Meeting

  • How does our meeting prepare its members, attenders, and children for worship, for the conduct of its business and for a way of life consistent with the principles of the Religious Society of Friends?
  • What opportunities do we provide for all in the meeting to learn about Friends’ history, practices and testimonies, the Judeo-Christian tradition, the life and teachings of Jesus, and other religious traditions?
  • How does our meeting’s religious education program provide experiential learning that enhances the sense of belonging to our worshipping community?
  • How do I help create a home where all members of the family receive affection and understanding and where visitors are welcome?
  • How does my manner of living enrich body, mind, and spirit; enable all to learn what it means to live a life of Spirit-led commitment; and demonstrate a high regard for family, community, and the integrity of creation?
  • How do I engage with my family and others who are dear to me regarding such sensitive topics as death, faith, money, sex, and drugs?
