JANUARY'S CHARITY

1st January 2023

In our increasingly divided world, Corrymeela is a movement of people rallied around one inspirational idea: ‘Together is better’.

Every year we welcome over 8,000 people from all walks of life, to our beautiful Ballycastle home and into our programmes in communities around Northern Ireland. 

We deeply believe that everyone is welcome, whatever their background, ethnicity, faith, sexuality or nationality.
We welcome everyone — because together is better.

From programmes enabling young people to tackle sectarianism, to supporting survivors of racism and homophobia, we work relentlessly to tackle intolerance, hatred and oppression.
We challenge injustice — because together is better.

As we hear each other’s story, we learn how to live well with each other.
We change ourselves — because together is better.

And, we’d love to welcome you.
Because Together is better.

ADVICES & QUERIES

Each week an Advice & Query will be posted here

Since 1682 it has been our practice to ask "How the Truth has prospered amongst them (Quakers) since the last yearly meeting, and how Friends are in peace and unity?"


That question has evolved into our 42 Advices and Queries. Each month one is chosen to be read to the Meeting for those present to reflect on. Periodically they are revised in the light of contemporary experience. They are challenges to encourage examination of your spiritual life.

Each week one of the Advices and Queries will be posted here. Please take time to read and consider how it bears on your life.

Advices & Queries: No.37

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.

BEING INVOLVED

Quakers do not stand apart from the world but have a history of being involved, joining with other to bring about change.

True godliness don’t turn men out of the world, but enables them to live better in it, and excites their endeavours to mend it: not hide their candle under a bushel, but set it upon a table in a candlestick.

William Penn, 1682
