Guidance and Assistance

The quarterly meeting may offer assistance when a monthly meeting faces difficult problems, needs encouragement, or seeks guidance in making decisions. The quarterly meeting may encourage its constituent meetings to submit regular spiritual self-assessments. (See Section VII for Guidelines for a Spiritual Self-assessment of the Meeting).

When a quarterly meeting is unable to fulfill its functions of oversight or assistance, or to receive and forward meeting covenants to the yearly meeting, the condition is reported to the yearly meeting for its advice and assistance.
