Faith and Practice of Baltimore Yearly Meeting
This section currently contains the complete text of the current Faith and Practice of Baltimore Yearly Meeting, as adopted in 1988, revised and printed in 2022.
During Annual Session 2013, a proposed revision to the complete text of Faith and Practice was considered by the Yearly Meeting. At the conclusion of the week, Friends were not in unity with approving the text. In 2019, the revision to Faith and Practice proposed in 2013 was reprinted with the title 2013 Resource for Faith and Practice. At Annual Session 2020 of Baltimore Yearly Meeting, the 1988 Faith and Practice was revised to include the Baltimore Yearly Meeting Vision Statement.
At Annual Session 2020 of Baltimore Yearly Meeting, changes in marriage provisions proposed by the Faith and Practice Committee received First Reading and have been sent to worshiping communities and other Yearly Meeting organizations for consideration. The current draft of the proposed marriage provisions can be downloaded on the Faith and Practice Committee's page at the link below.
