In QuakerSpeak’s first virtual interview since the pandemic hit, Friend Emily Provance, who travels in the ministry full-time, offers guidance on Spirit-led ways for Quakers to use online tools for worship and discernment.
“Something that is meaningful to me as we are learning how to worship virtually together is to ask ourselves the question, ‘How do I usually hear from God? What is that experience normally like for me?’ And we can pay attention to the same cues. God might surprise us. . . . We can experience hearing from Spirit in the same way even though we’re looking at each other on a screen.”
