Approximately eighty-five million meetings occur every day. It is clear from this figure that meetings are highly important, they shape our world. The Spirit works in every group, and as Christian participants at meetings we must go beyond passivity and place ourselves at the service of the Spirit. In meetings, we can act as the Spirit’s voice, becoming a still point, a prayerful and reflective presence.
