Records of Remembrance

“The possibility of writing a testimony concerning the life and service of a deceased Friend has been a valued part of our tradition. A testimony should not be a formal obituary or eulogy, but should record in thankfulness the power of divine grace in human life.” Quaker Faith and Practice 4.27

“It is the responsibility of Area Meeting to arrange for the preparation of a testimony… It is suggested that local meetings should write a brief passage for their own records on every member who dies”.  Q F&P 4.29

Oxford Meeting has been preparing records of remembrance for every member and regular attender who has died since 2009. Some of these have also been shared with Area Meeting and Yearly Meeting.
