Pittsburgh Friends Meeting Queries

​Queries for September on Children
Do we respect the dignity of our children?
Are we helping our children to recognize and respond to the Light in themselves and others?
How do our lives exemplify peace and caring? Do we encourage children to live simply, nonviolently, and with a concern for others, despite temptations from peers, the media, and society?
Do we listen to our children so that they learn to value their inner life and strength? Do we continue to love and support them when their actions hurt or grieve us?
Are we involved in the support, care, and religious education of the Meeting’s children? In the First Day School, are we teaching them about the history and practices of Friends and the application of Friends’ beliefs to everyday life? Do we teach them about the Bible and about other faiths?
What are we doing to improve the quality of education in the public schools? In what ways are we seeking to meet other needs of children in our communities?
