I wonder if there is some kind of ritual that could be created for taking the vote, something that would highlight the importance of the decision, and make it feel slower for the people who feel like things are moving too fast. I would include a considerable moment of silent meditation before the vote is taken.


I would also include a clear description of each option, read by different voices.

Those are both great suggestions, Davis. Thanks!
I think a prayerful ritual is exactly what this needs. I was actually toying with the idea of doing a clearness committee like the Quakers do for decision making. I took a class on that in seminary. Crazy SFTS!
