One of the ways Quakers have stayed in touch with each other through the years has been to write letters telling the story of their gatherings, so to create a worldwide network of correspondence and connection. These letters have historically been called epistles.
This year at PYM Annual Sessions, five epistles were written telling the experiences and spiritual insights of different cohorts within our faith community.
In the digital replica below you will find 5 epistles. The first epistle is from our plenary sessions. Following, in order, are epistles from Young Adult Friends, Young Friends, Middle School Friends and Friends in the Children’s Program. These epistles tell the story of our experience as a faith community at a moment in time, our 333rd Annual Sessions.
