Query: Personal Spiritual Life: Learning|
How can we most effectively foster a spirit of seeking the Light? What helps us to be open to new understanding, support, and guidance? What encourages us to share our spiritual insights with others and to willingly receive from them in turn? How does Meeting nurture our spiritual growth and transformation? What efforts are we making to become better acquainted with the sources of our spiritual heritage and the contributions of other religions and philosophies?
Ye have no time but this present time, therefore prize your time for your soul's sake. -- George Fox
Social Concerns Box
The Social Concerns Box in October is for Action in Montgomery (AIM). AIM, of which BFM is a member congregation, worked actively to ensure the passage of the referendum on the Maryland Dream Act and continues its advocacy for more affordable housing and funding for social services for those in need, among other actions.
