Our Virtual Meeting

A gathering place for our Meeting during the

Covid-19 waiting time.

This page has been created as a place where we can post suggestions each week for readings we can share and think about during our  "Meetings in Spirit" at home or in our Zoom Meeting online for those who choose not to attend Meeting for Worship in person.

If you are inspired to write something for this page to be shared with the wider community, you can email the Clerks or leave a message on our Contact page here in the website and we will post these after each Sunday "Meeting".

When this page is updated for the following week the previous week's readings and follow-on thoughts will be moved to the new "Virtual Meeting Archive" page found under the "Archive" tab above.  This will keep those thoughts together but allow this page to remain uncluttered. 

Reading for this week: 12th July 2020

From Lindsey Townhill

Quaker Faith & Practice 23:33 

Guided by the Light of God within us and recognising that of God in others, we can all learn to value our differences in age, sex, physique, race and culture.

This enables mutual respect and self-respect to develop, and it becomes possible for everyone to love one another as God loves us.

Throughout our lives, we see ourselves reflected in the facial expressions, verbal comments and body-language of others. We have a responsibility to protect each other’s self-respect.

Personality, sex, race, culture and experience are God’s gifts.

We need one another and differences shared become enrichments, not reasons to be afraid, to dominate or condemn.

The media have increased our knowledge of the world, but we need greater self-awareness if our actions are to be changed in relation to the information we receive.

We need to consider our behaviour carefully, heeding the command of Jesus that we should love our neighbours as we love ourselves.

Meg Maslin, 1990
