New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.

Text Currently Under Discussion

At Sessions in August 2018, the Faith and Practice Revision Committee presented a chapter on Membership for preliminary approval. The Yearly Meeting did not give preliminary approval to the Membership chapter at Sessions; the Revision Committee will bring the chapter back for preliminary approval in the future.

The Committee also presented two draft documents, one on Pastoral Care and one on Dying, Death and Bereavement. In October 2018, the committee sent all the monthly meetings and worship groups a copy of the two documents, asking Friends to consider the texts. Included in the mailing are a discussion guide and a poster/flyer for each text. The committee very much wants meeting comments on these documents and asks for input by February 1, 2019.
