Articles of Association of York Area Quaker Meeting
Stewardship involves prayer, and it involves thought, and it involves applying what emerges from the two.
As individuals our particular talents may lead us to greater emphasis on one of those elements but they can never be wholy divided within any of us, and as a community we need to be faithful to all three: prayer, thought and application.
