A collection of Quaker texts as used by New Zealand Friends. These are guides, not commandments "for the letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life".
This is a practical and informative guide to Quaker practice in this country. It is not a rigid set of rules and regulations but a description of what seems to have worked best in the past, based on Quaker theology, values and experience.
This is Section 1.5 of the Quaker Handbook which is also printed as a separate booklet under the title Advices & Queries.
There are two editions of Quaker Faith & Practice: one is the British edition and the other is authored specifically for New Zealand. Read more . . .
Living our values: amongst Quakers these are often referred to as our Quaker Testimonies.
