How Quakers Conduct Business
Friends' decision-making is based on communal discernment of where God is leading us. Discernment involves careful listening and recognizing God-inspired leadings. We use discernment to distinguish between an interior leading from God and a worldly impulse such as a desire to feel important or look clever.
During worship, Friends can come into a powerful experience of unity. The same unifying spirit is the basis for Friends' decision-making. Quakers do not decide by voting. Instead, we look for a unity deeper than majority rule.
You are welcome to attend.
