Cornwall Monthly Meeting
Here are some queries offered as supplement to Christopher Sammond's characteristically eloquent and inspiring vocal ministry offered at Fall Sessions (reprinted in Spark November 2016)
Do we trust the principle of self-governance enough to be at peace with a leader that a majority of us in a majority of our states have chosen?
In striving to love our enemies, do we also question why we hold them as enemies?
Do we walk cheerfully over the world, answering that of God in every person, or are we burdened by fear and suspicion when we encounter those who do not agree with us?
Do we guard against conflating our political convictions with the will of God?
