Manual of Procedure

X. Changes in Faith and Practice

Revisions to Faith and Practice are initiated by one or more Monthly or Quarterly Meetings or committees of the Yearly Meeting and are presented in writing to the Yearly Meeting. The Yearly Meeting then appoints at least three persons, nominated by the Nominating Committee, to serve on the Faith and Practice Revision Committee.

The Committee may help prepare proposed changes to ensure clarity and consistency with other sections of Faith and Practice. It circulates proposed revisions to all the Monthly and Quarterly Meetings in Baltimore Yearly Meeting with sufficient time that Monthly Meetings may prepare comments for a Quarterly Meeting session before Yearly Meeting. It is responsible for ensuring that changes approved by the Yearly Meeting are incorporated into Faith and Practice. For “Important Minutes” from prior years, please see the Draft 2013 Faith & Practice, pages 241-55 at http://www.bym-rsf.org/publications/fandp/.
