An excerpt from Baltimore Yearly Meeting Faith and Practice:
“Waiting upon the Holy Spirit in silent expectation and prayer is the basis of our meeting for worship. Vocal ministry should arise out of a sense of being inwardly moved to share a message aloud. Sometimes a message is not ripe yet, or comes clearly but is meant only for the person receiving it, not for the group. Some Friends are led to speak frequently, and others only rarely; yet the timid or brief message of one who seldom speaks may be as moving and helpful as that of a more practiced speaker. The experienced speaker should be watchful not to speak too often or at undue length. No Friend should come to meeting for worship with an intention to speak or not to speak.”
At 11am Deborah Suess will offer the morning message continuing on her series of the cycle of grace with “Significance”. Jean Christy will join her on Facing Bench.
12:10 pm Monthly Meeting all welcome.
