Eugene Friends wrote: "In the Fall of 2007, four Eugene Friends formed an ad hoc committee to review the displine. We wanted to create a forum for our monthly meeting and worship groups to worship and discusss the proposed revisions in community, and also a format for sending seasoned feedback to the NPYM committee. We decided to name the process Coming to Terms with Our Faith & Practice in the 21st Century."
The Study Guide generated helpful conversation and energy for Committee of the Disciplines' mission to revise the Faith and Practice.
