“…Friends’ unique practices flow from a conviction concerning what is the right outward form. The right form for church government, worship, and ministry answers the same question: how should we act, what should be our response…” — Margaret Fell, 1700
Governance and Stewardship Resource Friends help our community thrive by providing support in the areas of Friends decision making, property maintenance, monthly meeting management, finances, and fundraising. Knowing what minutes are and how to take them, knowing the joy of clerking a committee or meeting, understanding how we make decisions as a community, and sharing in the work of building budgets and maintaining property are each areas that have profound importance and require skill building and spiritual awareness.
Through the teaching ministry, Resource Friends in Governance and Stewardship offer informational tools and spirit-led experiential opportunities to facilitate learning, deepening of practice, and preparing Quaker communities for the essential work of following the life of the spirit together.
