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.
