A key explanation of the role of Spirit in Quaker business meetings' search for unity in decision making. Consensus should not be our guide, or goal. ( )

This is a pamphlet I carry extra copies of with me when I attend religious/spiritual conferences. Often, people will approach me and say, "my church, group, business has discovered Quaker consensus and it has made a real difference." Because consensus is a secular term and it does not take into account the Spirit, which is also present in our gatherings. Complete agreement is not often found, but the "sense of the meeting" will be there, even if that "sense" is to table an item for the time being. ( )

A fine, brief presentation of the why's and how-to's of listening for the sense of the meeting. ( )
