Epistle Committee

About Epistle Committee

The Epistle Committee repares an annual epistle “To Friends Everywhere” conveying the greetings, spirit, and spiritual health and concerns of the NYYM Summer Sessions, to be sent to other yearly and general meetings of Friends, and to each monthly meeting in the Yearly Meeting. The Committee also receives, digests, and selects epistles (or excerpts) from other yearly meetings of Friends for reading during business meetings at Summer, Fall, and Spring Sessions.
