A Story About Church Votes

One of my friends told me about a pastor they know who asks an interesting question before members of their church vote on a decision.

They said each time the church votes on a course of action, the pastor invites everyone to observe a moment of silent prayer. Each person, in the silence, is asked to pray to God and seek God’s will for the church.

Then, the pastor asks, “If you think this course of action is God’s will for our church, please raise your hand.”

That’s a different way to conduct a business meeting.
