To Have Effective Meetings

In the operation of institutions—governmental, educational, religious, or whatever—meetings are essential. Yet too often meetings are frustrating and ineffective. What's the remedy?

Mrs. Eddy makes a statement, the truth of which, when appealed to, regenerates our meetings as well as our bodies: "The necessity for uplifting the race is father to the fact that Mind can do it; for Mind can impart purity instead of impurity, strength instead of weakness, and health instead of disease. Truth is an alterative in the entire system, and can make it 'every whit whole.'" Science and Health, p. 371;

To the extent that activity contributes to the well-being and progress of humanity, it has a divine impetus. We can see such activity as governed by the power of Mind, God, who guides, sustains, and protects every aspect of its operation, including necessary meetings. God's purpose must be fulfilled; hence, the Father, divine Love, preserves whatever is in accord with His purpose and supplies whatever is needed.
