A Post from Madison Monthly Meeting News, with an excerpt from my post regarding FWCC Traveling Ministry Corps

Your Heart Knows What to Do


We have a traveling minister in our midst. Chuck Schobert, a member of the Traveling Ministry
Corps of Friends World Committee for Consultation (FWCC), recently visited West Richmond Monthly Meeting. An article about this visit written by Anne Hutchinson was distributed via the Madison Meeting Listserve. Here are excerpts from Anne’s article.


Chuck's message, entitled "Your Heart Knows What to Do," began with a reference to
Acts 12:24: "But the word of the Lord went on increasing." … Chuck described the way that
"the word of the Lord" germinated and developed in him. In his message, Chuck talked
about his vocation as a veterinarian and the joys it gave him. He went on to relate how he
came out of retirement to work in a clinic which cared for the pets of homeless persons.
Chuck described the powerful impact of animals in accompanying, supporting and, sometimes,
rescuing their owners in surprising and unexpected ways.
Chuck described how his head and his heart work
together in him to honor God's will in two ways:
caring for animals and traveling in ministry, crossing
boundaries between the different branches
of Quakerism. He told of the long discernment and
seasoning of about traveling in ministry as he
searched his mind and heart about it. He described
his experience of seeing the word of the Lord increasing in his life and in the life of Quakers
throughout the world through his participation in FWCC. …
Chuck's message reminds that Quakers have many different views of the meaning and experience
of God, yet can be united in mutual love, understanding, and concern. Visitation
through the Traveling Ministry can be an instrument in transforming lives.


Mary Collet adds: We in Madison Monthly Meeting have often been blessed with messages from Chuck during
Meeting for Worship. How wonderful that he can now share his gifts with other Meetings too!
