"Committee work is a richly satisfying way to put Quaker principles and beliefs into practice. The work of all committees is conducted in the spirit of worship. Most Friends experience, too, a profoundly rewarding sense that they are helping to perpetuate and renew a fundamental tradition of Quakerism. At the same time, serving on a committee is for many the best way to come to know others in the Meeting and to form meaningful new friendships. Newcomers learn much from old-timers; old-timers find new sources of vitality and hope for the future of Quakerism from their close contact with newcomers to the Meeting."

--Blue Book of Brooklyn Meeting Committee Responsibilities, 2009
