27.23 The true basis of Christian unity, prepared by London Yearly Meeting’s Commission on Faith & Order and presented to London Yearly Meeting 1917, printed in London YM Proc, 1917, pp158-159. The document was prepared as a result of a statement Towards Christian unity, issued in 1916 by a group of Anglicans and Free Churchmen and considered by Friends unsatisfactory because it implied that unity was to be sought along a line of agreement in doctrine and practice without sufficiently emphasising ‘the essential basis of Christian experience and the Christian spirit and way of life’. The calling of the World Conference on Faith & Order at Lausanne in 1927 led to a revision of the statement as The basis of Christian unity, and a further revision under this title was issued in 1937.
