"Why do committees exist in a world that supposedly is ruled by an omnipotent, loving God?"
From Ironic Catholic (be sure to get your daily Iron-y quotient!):
Dear Communion of Saints,
I am on numerous committees through my work and parish and never found any of them productive or life giving in any sense of the word. Indeed, the banality of the work rivals the lowest depths of Dante's Divine Comedy. Hell hath no fury like a committee. Why, then, why do they exist in a world that supposedly is ruled by an omnipotent, loving God? Do they have a purpose in the divine plan?
Anxiously awaiting an answer while in a said meeting, Joe

Go to Ironic Catholic for the answer!!!
