The Faith and Practice of North Pacific Yearly Meeting (NPYM) is an evolving document. This third edition reflects the growing experience of NPYM Friends, who seek to follow the Inner Light. Readers are urged to use the book in that Light. The intent of the book is to be descriptive, not prescriptive. The Faith & Practice Committee took pains to make the tone of this edition of the NPYM Faith and Practice less directive than it had been. While it is still intended as a reference for "what do we do when-?" the book now notes a range of possibilities when different meetings have different practices around a given issue.
