**During Annual Session 2013, a proposed revision to the complete text of Faith and Practice was considered by the Yearly Meeting. (click here to download a copy of this text as presented at that time) At the conclusion of the week, Friends did not in unite in approving the text. The minute recording the lack of unity is Y2013-56. (Minute 2013-56 can be found at page 136 of the 2013 Yearbook of Baltimore Yearly Meeting.) In 2019, the text of the proposed 2013 revision to Faith and Practice was reprinted as the 2013 Resource for Faith and Practice.
