Quaker Decision-making

Little Falls Friends meet monthly to discuss matters that affect the Meeting community. In keeping with traditional Quaker practice, we conduct our discussions and make our decisions in a spirit of worship, waiting upon the Light for guidance, respectful of the value of each person’s contribution. All participate in the process as they are led, because the Light is accessible to all. No vote is ever taken; when the community comes to be united as of one mind, then we recognize that a decision has been reached. One Friend serves as clerk, helping us follow the agenda and helping discern when unity has been found; another Friend usually serves as recorder, taking minutes and sometimes reading a minute back to ensure accuracy. Members and visitors are welcome to participate in business meeting.
