Marc Brier read from the 2018 Faith and Practice from Philadelphia Yearly Meeting:
Deepening Our Faith: Meeting for Business
Is our meeting for business held in worship in which we seek divine guidance?
How do we sustain prayerful consideration of all aspects of an issue and address difficult problems with a search for truth that is unhurried by the pressures of time?
Do we recognize that we speak through our inaction as well as our action?
Do I regularly attend meeting for business? If unable to attend, how do I fulfill the responsibility to understand and embrace the decisions made?
How do I affirm and support God’s presence in the process of discernment and reaching a decision?
Do I remain open to personal transformation as the community arrives at the sense of the meeting?
