Spirit Led Quaker Decision Making
March 22, 2014 – 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM
A workshop on Quaker Business Practice by Deborah Fisch
During our morning session we will explore together how Friends use faith, Love, Listening and community discernment to address the work of the meeting in its committees as well as monthly meetings with attention to business. What is the work of the clerks and what is the work of the body? What is the difference between consensus and sense of the meeting. This mini workshop will be for Friends of all ages who want to better understand the unique and powerful manner in which Friends consider the business of their meetings.
