Minutes of Asheville Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business

One of the assumptions in Quaker business practice is that something more than the best wisdom of the group will be achieved - that those present are listening for something more than what each person thinks. Working toward a sense of the meeting is about listening for what Spirit would have us do in this instance. It is not a negotiated settlement or compromise, giving each person some of what they want. Rather, it is a moving toward, which does not require logical agreement.
