Meetings

I hate meetings.

Meetings of all kinds.

But especially those that have no meaning. Meaningless meetings.

I remember when I was a young teenager a youth group from a church in Little Rock came to our church in Calico Rock to perform a play that poked fun at how churches are so ineffective. They have many committees that constantly meet but do nothing. "Organize, organize, here the wheels grind" is the line from the play that sticks in my mind.

Let's have fewer meetings and more action. We can't eliminate all meetings but every meeting should include a call to action.
