When Quakers gather to make decisions, they do so with the hope of being called into unity by the loving Spirit--but too often that sense of unity and sure guidance are elusive, and instead Friends experience impatience and frustration. The late Bill Taber, a teacher and spiritual guide beloved to many Friends, addressed Quaker business practice in a number of presentations to Friends groups. Quaker scholar Michael Birkel has edited Bill's notes into an inspiring essay on how Friends can learn practices and attitudes that promote Spirit-led decisions. Discussion questions included.
