Revising Faith and Practice

Revision of Faith and Practice is initiated only by action of the yearly meeting in session. Any major revision places heavy demands upon those individuals entrusted with this responsibility, and careful consideration should be given to their selection, the expected extent and process of the revision, and the staff and financial support needed.

Proposed revisions will be widely circulated and discussed prior to formal acceptance and publication by the yearly meeting. To assure full opportunity for consideration by the whole membership, a proposed revision of Faith and Practice will be presented to yearly meeting for a preliminary (first) reading and may not be finally accepted until a year later.
