Friends Recorded with Gifts in Ministry

New York Yearly Meeting continues the ancient Quaker practice of recording the gifts in ministry of Friends whose meetings choose to recognize their gifts in this way. This is not an ordination as practiced by other Christian fellowships, which commonly confers ministerial status on the recipient. Rather, the Quaker practice is an outward recognition—a recording—of gifts that the Spirit has already manifested in the life and work of a Friend.
