Revision of Faith and Practice - Discipline Committee seeks comments

NOTE TO FRIENDS: This draft is a revision of parts of chapters 4, 5, and 6 of the 1993 NPYM Faith and Practice, according to the new outline which gathers all material about a topic (description, quotations, advices, queries) into the same place in the book.

Some parts of this chapter are new to Faith and Practice, as requested by NPYM Friends: prayer, silence, ministry, creativity, and the material on individual discernment.

Comments or questions about specific additions, deletions, or changes appear in [[italics in double square brackets]]. These comments will not appear in the final version of Faith and Practice.

At North Pacific Yearly Meeting’s Annual Session in 2013 Friends approved the recommendation of The Ad Hoc Committee on External Quaker Relations to establish a fund to assist Friends who are led to travel for visitation as a representative of NPYM to other branches of our Quaker community in the United States.
