New England Yearly Meeting

A community of Quakers and Quaker meetings across New England.

Faith and Practice Revision Committee

  • Welcome

    New England Yearly Meeting approved undertaking a revision of its 1985 Faith and Practice at its sessions in 2000 and a Faith and Practice Revision Committee was appointed at its sessions the following year. This web site was inaugurated in June 2006 to convey an overall sense of its work since 2001 and to encourage NEYM Friends' participation in the process.

    Under Revised Texts are chapters presented to sessions, in process as working papers or as approved by sessions (either preliminary or final approval). The Draft Table of Contents conveys an overall sense of general topics and their status; the Revised Texts link offers more detail on possible subtopics within those chapters.

    Joining the Process includes Frequently Asked Questions, which offers some general background to the revision, a description of the approval process, and some suggestions on considering texts. It also includes Invitations to Participate, letters the committee has sent to individuals and groups inviting them to participate in the revision process.
