This book explains what faithfulness is and how it can be cultivated by a community that practices ways to listen inwardly together for divine guidance. Above all, this book is a guide to faithfulness groups, a practice that holds great potential for supporting individuals of any faith in allowing the work of the Spirit to become manifest through them and their communities.
The guidebook describes the Quaker experience of being led by the Spirit to particular tasks, calls, and ministries. It also describes a range of practices we can use to help one another notice the movements of the Spirit within us and our lives; discern the leadings of the Spirit; discover what might cause us to resist; and open ourselves to the inner and outer support we need to live faithful lives. Deep listening is one of the foundational practices. Others include Evoking Questions, Mirroring, Using Images, and more. Gathering on a regular basis in Faithfulness Groups is a wonderful way to use these practices with one another in service to Spirit-filled living.
To “listen another’s soul into a condition of disclosure and discovery may be almost the greatest service that any human being ever performs for another” —Douglas Steere
