Friends’ testimonies are descriptions of actions and behaviors that have characteristically sprung from the very foundation of shared Quaker beliefs. They are neither proscriptive nor prescriptive, but descriptive of Friends’ lives.
This present version attempts to describe Intermountain Yearly Meeting and the Society of Friends both as we have been over time and as we are now. It can be found online at . . .
This second edition of Faith and Practice was prepared over a period of seven years by the Discipline Committee for use by members of North Pacific Yearly Meeting.
A guide to Quaker discipline in the experience of Pacific Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society. Available online at . . .
