From: Advices and queries; Britain Yearly Meeting Faith and Practice, 5th edition, @ 1995-2015 Quaker Faith and Practice
'The Religious Society of Friends is rooted in Christianity and has always found inspiration in the life and teachings of Jesus. How do you interpret your faith in the light of this heritage? How does Jesus speak to you today? Are you following Jesus' example of love in action? Are you learning from his life the reality and cost of obedience to God? How does his relationship with God challenge and inspire you?'
Take time this week to read through a very short - very powerful - sermon. Christ's 'sermon on the mount'. You'll find it in the Gospel of Matthew, Chapters 5-7. This reading encapsulates Christ's teachings. Consider answering the set of queries above before reading the sermon. Then, after reading it. What things change? What things remain the same? How does Jesus speak to you today?
