Trusting in the Spirit

A sunny Yearly Meeting at Friends House, 2012
Yearly Meeting is the annual decision-making forum for all Quakers in Britain. This year it will be at Friends House, London from 24-27 May.

The theme of this year's Meeting is 'Trusting in the Spirit', and Friends are being encouraged to consider some questions in advance of the Meeting, and to send our responses in by 7th May. I have been asked to present a 'distillation' of the responses during the first session of Yearly Meeting on Friday evening, so I'd like to encourage as many Friends as possible to contribute. The questions are:
  • How have you discerned the right way forward in your own life?
  • What experiences have you had of Quaker meetings being guided by the Spirit when making decisions?
  • What do you value about the ways in which Friends work together?
You can read others' responses and add your own at the YM webforum here
or send your contribution by email to:
Or if you'd prefer, you can also add your response to any or all of the questions in the comments section below, and I will add them into the mix!

More details about Yearly Meting 2013 are on the BYM website here.
