Scott Wagoner: Exploring the Meaning and Purpose of Quaker Structure
. I recognize that at some point early Friends established structure and organization.

Quakers often seem in survival mode these days and in that mode there is a scrambling for resources and a piece of the pie. What if the structure of Yearly Meetings in their present form are not meant to stay that way?
