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.
