As a worldwide Christian association of Friends, Friends United Meeting has access to an unparalleled breadth of spiritual resources to offer the Body of Christ as a whole. Here, we highlight a small sampling of the written resources that we make available. Many more resources are available at the Friends United Press website.
Friends United Meeting has many ministries that need your support — and a great way is through your prayers. Our hope is through your regular prayer time, you will become more connected to the ministries of FUM and, more importantly, those for whom you pray might feel the power of your prayers. May God richly bless you during your prayer times as you intercede on the behalf of the ministry of Friends United Meeting.
Quaker Life is the premier publication of Friends United Meeting. Bringing together voices from across North America, East Africa, the Caribbean and Middle East, Quaker Life is truly a source of unity. In its pages, you will find the compelling narrative, theology, poetry and reflection of a great people being gathered in the widest diversity of settings imaginable, finding unity in the love and power of the Lord Jesus.
The current issue of Quaker Life is focused on Friends’ experience of unity. As we gather together in the name of Jesus, what does it mean to live into the unity that he offers us?
With the majority of Friends worldwide living in Kenya, we are deeply concerned about the possibility of conflict surrounding national elections in Kenya this year. David Zarembka of the African Great Lakes Initiative provides updates about the situation on the ground.
One of the regular ways that Friends United Meeting builds connections among our local congregations is through a monthly publication called FOCUS. Fitting on one sheet, FOCUS is intended to be included with the church bulletin, or handed out at the rise of meeting. Check out the current flyer, or read back issues:

The 40 Days of Prayer devotional booklet is available for order and free download. It includes daily meditations, queries for reflection, action steps to consider, and a suggested focus for prayer.
