Launch of the Faith and Practice Revision Process – A Request

Dear Friends,

The Faith and Practice Revision Committee invites you to engage in the “rolling revision” process of prayerfully discerning how our Faith and Practice can support meetings and individuals as we seek to live an authentic Quaker spirituality.  The first round of revisions is now ready for your consideration.

We request that monthly meetings and other bodies review the proposed revisions together and send us those points upon which they found unity. If no unity is found, a brief description of the feel of the meeting is welcome. We anticipate that this process will occur three (or so) times per year, as new revised pieces are presented.

For Summer/Fall of 2018, there are three pieces to consider. The first segment is a revision to our advices and queries on “Reaching Out.”  The second is a new section on Leadings. The third describes the positions and roles of the Youth Programs Coordinator and the Youth Programs Coordinating Committee.  This will also be a new section to Faith and Practice.

Below you will find links to each of these sections, with instructions and the proposed text for each piece.

These same links and a fuller description of the “rolling revision process” can also be found on the F&P Revision Committee’s PYM webpage.

We would like to have responses to these three pieces by October 15, 2018. Tracked changes, a scan of written edits, or other form of meeting response can be sent to:   PYM.FPRevision@gmail.com

Thank you.

The Faith and Practice Revision Committee
