Handbook Revision Committee

You are here

Topics under consideration

As we produce/update draft sections for Friends' consideration and comment, they are made available here.  Friends are asked to send comments and questions via their Meeting's Liaison Friend/s (see committee page) or RM clerks.



Drafts are shown with the current text at the left, DIA proposed text in the middle column with the changes highlighted and in red and explanations in the third column.


Image shows three columns of digital text with editing, crossing out etc and sections in different colours. In responding, please explain your reasons, your understandings or knowledge that guided your discernment outcomes? (AND  indicate the date of the version you are responding to.) Some of these explanations may be included in our updates in order to help Friends discern their own responses, because it will be useful for other Friends, and the Handbook Revision Committee to know why you are in unity with the proposed entry, or what hesitancy arises in your meeting.

The committee continues to work on other sections where rewording has been suggested.

Remember this flowchart  (subject to confirmation at YM23) which illustrates how changes to the Handbook are produced.
