Chapter Community Meeting

Our Lady of Mercy Chapter had a community meeting, today. It was an excellent example of personal interaction. I mean that in a good way. Differences were put out in the open and addressed or at least a process was set in motion to address them.

Over and over it was stressed that each one of us was important. Each person was to be listened to. If my former chapter had run their community meetings like this, the history of the chapters in this area would be very different. There probably would not have been any need to leave or break away from that chapter. No one is more important than another. The council serves the community, not the council mandates orders to the community. The president of the council serves the community, which is very unlike some chapters. Some chapters have their president as a despot.

I just love my chapter. It's what a LFSD chapter should be. It's the best.
