What are Epistles?
In a tradition dating back to the first days of the Christian church, New York Yearly Meeting composes an epistle each year during its annual Summer Sessions describing how we perceive the movement of the Spirit among us as a meeting, how we are faring, what our concerns are at that time, and what our hopes are for the future. Typically, these epistles are addressed "to Friends Everywhere" and are distributed to the wider Quaker community, but they are also intended for the wider world beyond Quaker circles.
