A few weeks ago we had another query that you may want to ponder. It was: Do you work gladly with other religious groups in the pursuit of common goals? While remaining faithful to Quaker insights, try to enter imaginatively into the life and witness of other communities of faith, creating together the bonds of friendship?
What are you thoughts?

Today’s Query was:
Do you try to set aside times of quiet for openness to the Holy Spirit? All of us need to find a way into silence, which allows us to deepen our awareness of the divine and to find the inward source of our strength. Seek to know an inward stillness, even amid the activities of daily life. Do you encourage in yourself and in others a habit of dependence on God’s guidance for each day? Hold yourself and others in the Light, knowing that all are cherished by God.
We had a good discussion, what do you think?

Certainly sounds like a feast of veggies, at least that’s the hope in about 2-3 months. This past Wednesday evening in celebration of Earth Month, Hillel members spent a couple of hours creating and planting a plethora of veggies in our new community garden! When deciding how exactly we should construct the garden, Stephanie consulted some co-workers and online resources. The base of the garden isn’t tilled (apparently, that’s just an age-old tradition which isn’t quite necessary), instead the foundation consists of recycled cardboard boxes, layers of soil, organic dried blood and pine needles to help repel those determined rabbits and squirrels! Next, we diligently planted several different plant varietals such as tomatoes, green peppers, sweet potatoes, cilantro and even some soul soothing Forget-Me Nots. In the end it sort of resembles a cake, layers of soil topped with tasty treats with a lot of love put into it! Here’s to hoping there’s a large feast at the end of this endeavor, or least throughout the summer!

Do you provide in your schedule of activities an opportunity for
daily devotions? Do you prayerfully seek the leading of the Holy
Spirit in the interpretation of scriptural truth? Does your personal
conduct reflect the true dignity of Christian character as set forth
in the Scriptures? Do you always strive so to live that you will have
a “conscience void of offense toward God and Man?”
