How does one assess a counterculture? Yes, that was our challenge: to give some parameters to a faith that has no template, creed, Vision Statement, and/or strategic plan. In under one year, under the director of a Spirit-led Clerk, we, the MASC, created an RFP that aims to examine the counterculture that is Quakerism. We are excited to bring you this RFP, our First Fruit of Collaboration and Creativity!
