What’s the ‘long term framework’ and why does it matter? - preview

Britain Yearly Meeting recording clerk Gillian Ashmore envisions a living document with worthwhile outcomes

What makes God laugh most? Seeing someone making a Plan


  • With, I hope, due humility Meeting for Sufferings is seeking to set out a path for the work of the whole of Friends in Britain for the 6 years from 2009 to 2014


  • Many Friends may not know that we already have a Long Term Plan which will expire at the end of this year
  • That document covered just the work of Committees and staff at the centre and was quite vague about where the focus might be


  • Sufferings wants to be bolder this time
  • So they have appointed a group to prepare not another Plan but a 'Framework' which can encompass all the work of meetings and groups and the centre
  • Area and local meetings, listed informal groups, other Quaker bodies and individual Friends will have the chance to contribute

  • Gillian Ashmore
