What We Believe (public statements)

Quakers have a tradition of “minuting” statements that summarize how God is leading us.  They may be about social action and witness in the world, or discernment about how we proceed in our Quaker community.  The links below are some of our minutes, and reflect our Meeting’s views on various topics and issues.
