Texts Currently Under Discussion

At Sessions in August 2019, the Faith and Practice Revision Committee presented a chapter on Membership and one on Dying, Death and Bereavement; both were given for preliminary approval at Sessions. You can find those texts here.

In the fall of 2019, the Faith and Practice Revision committee mailed to all the monthly meetings and worship groups a copy of a draft chapter on Marriage, asking Friends to consider the text. Six meetings sent the committee their responses before the pandemic upended meeting schedules. At Sessions in August 2020 the committee held a Listening Session on the chapter that was well attended. The committee encourages meetings to send their responses to the Marriage chapter to the committee.

The chapter "Personal Spiritual Experiences" included below will be coming back to the Yearly Meeting in Sessions for preliminary approval. The text is read by Eden Grace in the podcast episode below.
