Meeting moratorium

Is it possible that the kingdom of God is truly "grinding to a halt" because of too many meetings?

That's what James Jones, a senior bishop in the Church of England, told The Church of England Newspaper. Whenever difficult issues arise in the church, he said, someone sets up a consultation. "Nobody ever audits the amount of time and paper, or person hours, that will be spent on this," Jones added.

The bishop says people should instead be given more time with friends and families, so they can "share the lover of life, who is Jesus, with the world."
