Primitive Christianity Revived, Again
A Friend at Meeting is fond of saying "A Meeting where there is no spoken ministry is a Meeting on it's way down". I am very fond of the words folks share when they speak form the silence, but I am not sure I agree with this Friend's statement. Our Meeting is small, ten or fifteen people each week, and it's not uncommen to have no one rise to speak.
Maybe God is sharing messages with us intended for the individual only. Maybe we need to be better listeners. Sometimes several people speak at Meeting. What do you think? Is a lack of shared messages during silent worship a problem?
