June 14

Advices and Queries:

  1. Do you recognise the needs and gifts of each member of your family and household, not forgetting your own? Try to make your home a place of loving friendship and enjoyment, where all who live or visit may find the peace and refreshment of God’s presence.

Ask a Quaker Anything Day

Sunday May 31 is “Ask a Quaker Anything Day” at Winnipeg Monthly Meeting. We do this every fifth Sunday of a month. Please feel free during our sharing time after Meeting for Worship to ask any of your questions about Quakers!

Advices and Queries:

  1. Children and young people need love and stability. Are we doing all we can to uphold and sustain parents and others who carry the responsibility for providing this care?

Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business, May 17

This Sunday after Meeting for Worship (11-12), is Winnipeg Monthly Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business, at 12:45 p.m. All are welcome!

Advices and Queries:

  1. Respect the wide diversity among us in our lives and relationships. Refrain from making prejudiced judgments about the life journeys of others. Do you foster the spirit of mutual understanding and forgiveness which our discipleship asks of us? Remember that each one of us is unique, precious, a child of God.

Revelation and Revolution – this Sunday!

This coming Sunday, May 10, please join us for Quaker 101 study, as we discuss “Revelation and Revolution: Answering the Call to Radical Faithfulness” by Steve Chase. This Pendle Hill Pamphlet challenges us to look at what, if anything, Quaker faith calls us to do in the face of injustice.

We will start at 9:30 am, in the Winnipeg Monthly Meeting area at the Centre for Christian Studies.

All are welcome!

First Day and Potluck Sunday

This Sunday at our Meeting in Winnipeg we will have First Day (children’s program during Meeting for Worship) and potluck lunch afterwards at 12 pm. All are welcome!

Advices and Queries:

  1. Do you give sufficient time to sharing with others in the meeting, both newcomers and long-time members, your understanding of worship, of service, and of commitment to the Society’s witness? Do you give a right proportion of your money to support Quaker work?

PSAC meeting this Sunday

This Sunday, April 26, the Peace and Social Action Committee meets at 9:30 am, before the Meeting for Worship. All are welcome.

Advices and Queries:

  1. Rejoice in the presence of children and young people in your meeting and recognize the gifts they bring. Remember that the meeting as a whole shares a responsibility for every child in its care. Seek for them as for yourself a full development of God’s gifts and the abundant life Jesus tells us can be ours. How do you share your deepest beliefs with them, while leaving them free to develop as the spirit of God may lead them? Do you invite them to share their insights with you? Are you ready both to learn from them and to accept your responsibilities towards them?

Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business

This Sunday after Meeting for Worship, is Winnipeg Monthly Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business, at 12:45 p.m. All are welcome!

Advices and Queries:

  1. How can we make the meeting a community in which each person is accepted and nurtured, and strangers are welcome? Seek to know one another in the things which are eternal, bear the burden of each other’s failings and pray for one another. As we enter with tender sympathy into the joys and sorrows of each other’s lives, ready to give help and to receive it, our meeting can be a channel for God’s love and forgiveness.

First Day and Potluck Sunday!

This week – April 5 – we have both our First Day program  for children during Meeting for Worship, as well as Potluck afterwards. All are welcome!

Advices and Queries to consider:

  1. Do you welcome the diversity of culture, language and expressions of faith in our yearly meeting and in the world community of Friends? Seek to increase your understanding and to gain from this rich heritage and wide range of spiritual insights. Uphold your own and other yearly meetings in your prayers.
