The resources in this section reflect practices used by Friends meetings managing their business, by individuals asking for help in discerning their way forward, by Friends seeking to witness to the world, and by small groups hoping to build community and deepen their spiritual life. Each set of practices is a little different, but all share the same intent. They create space in which listening is valued over speaking, unity is valued over winning, and the possibility of transformation is kept alive. They remind us that if we submit to the Light, and stand steadfast in love, we can be part of the healing of the world.
