~ Exploring Quaker Writings with Palo Alto Friends Meeting January 18, 2021 7:30 PM Pacific = 8:30 PM Mountain Click here to join the meeting. We will read together and discuss: Trying to Be Truthful by Chel Avery Pages 1-3 and 14-25. "Much of the very culture and belief system of Friends has fostered a practice of truth. . . What is truth? Is it ever desirable to tell less than the whole truth or to lie? What about the white lie? When we avoid telling an unpleasant truth, are we protecting another person or ourselves? The Quaker practices of waiting and of care with choosing words, grounded in love, guide us toward a high standard for truth that helps us grow toward wholeness."  – Chel Avery Click here to download the pages we will be reading.
