Our fraternity is growing quite large, and we are trying to fit in as much time for individual
discussion as possible. No sooner has everyone said everything, the meeting is over.
Everyone is frustrated they don't have enough times to speak, and the minister is continually looking as his watch. What is significant is that some members seem to have the
floor more than others and they speak longer. After the meeting we have coffee and talk.
I'm thinking the meeting times should be 3 hours. It's not unreasonable since it's a monthly gathering. 2 hours would be max for meetings that occured on a bi-weekly basis.
But we also don’t want to feel rushed.
But how is this handled in orders generally inside the Church?. How do the secular Dominicans do it for instance, and has anyone solved this problem.? Thoughts?
