Advices are tidbits of advice compiled by a fairly large Quaker group, using consensus process, always seeking complete unity in their deliberations.

Below are the advices written by Friends from New England about the 2005 World Gathering of Young Friends, which gathered 18-35 year old Quakers from around the world in Lancaster, England, and Mombasa, Kenya.

Humbly seek out that of God in the way others live and find what’s deeply right in it.

Talk about your spiritual journey explicitly. Find words for that which is hard or strange.

Evangelize. Spread the good news.

Never be absolutely sure that you are right.

Abandon your forms when they do not fulfill God’s will.

Find in your faith things to live humbly by and to die for.

Do your work. Call others to do theirs.

With your sins and the sins of your parents: admit them, repent them, heal the wounds.

Read the Bible.

Have joyful worship. Do not always be somber.

Face your fears and your powerlessness. Have faith.

Know who you are spiritually and trust God to know where you are going.

Deny the distractions. Follow only God.

Love boldly. Share deeply.

Forgive and forgive and forgive.
