proper use of recess

"A recess, strictly speaking, is a short intermission or break within a meeting that does not end the meeting or destroy its continuity as a single gathering, and after which proceedings are immediately resumed at the point where they were interrupted. During the recess, members may leave the hall or room in which the meeting is being held, but they are expected to remain nearby." [page 80]

Perhaps the motion you are seeking is to set the time to which to adjourn and hold an adjourned meeting sometime later.

I think the problem is that the rules that govern the opening and closing exercises require the "rites" to be held at each meeting. Presumably, this means that they are to be repeated at the beginning and end of an adjourned meeting, as well.

My own sense of this is that the opening and closing exercises can be dispensed with by suspending the rules for this purpose by a two-thirds vote.
