Advices and Queries are bits of wisdom and reminders to be examples of love, tolerance, and responsible citizenship. These are published with the Quaker Faith and Practice, which also includes matters of governance over Quaker meetings.

As an example, No. 37 speaks to the Quaker Testimony of Integrity: "Are you honest and truthful in all you say and do? Do you maintain strict integrity in business transactions and in your dealings with individuals and organisations? Do you use money and information entrusted to you with discretion and responsibility? Taking oaths implies a double standard of truth; in choosing to affirm instead, be aware of the claim to integrity that you are making."… (more)

Local notes

Leather bound; inscriptions: D.M. Gibbons 1975; (inside back cover): "The seed of God is in us. Given an intelligent and hard-working farmer, it will thrive & grow up to God, whose seed it is; and accordingly its fruits will be God-nature. Pear seeds grow into pear trees, nut seeds into nut trees, & God seeds into God." Eckhart. [This is the copy that was on Friends Meeting House table until the 1988 "Questions and Counsel" replaced it.]
