Quaker Meeting for Business

We had a Meeting for Business at church today, or, to use the full Quaker nomenclature, Meeting for Worship with a Concern for Business.  I am always amazed by the transparency and care and spirituality of it.  The goal is not to arrive at consensus, but to listen together and discern how the Spirit is leading.  The end result (beside getting business done within a worshipful context) is a deepened sense of faith and community--that God is present and at work in our midst.
