I really value and appreciate the suggestion you are making here. In our weekly manager's meeting, we start with a devotional thought and a prayer. I know there are offices around campus that start this way each morning, and I know God blesses our efforts when we put each day in His care.
Some of the groups within ITS have their own weekly meetings, and I would certainly encourage opening these meetings with prayer, at least, but also with some time spent thinking about spiritual matters.
Doing this for ITS as a whole would be a wonderful idea. I will bring it up in the next manager's meeting. I suspect a difficulty could be the different work habits that different individuals have with regard to starting time. But there may be a way to resolve that at least on one day per week.
Thanks again for the suggestion Terry.
