P 152 Honest Conversations in Churches: Exploring Expectations Together

£2.77

Diverse participation in the life of a church is a healthy sign of Christian community. But the downside of a shared approach to leadership is that many voices can lead to disagreement.

This practical booklet suggests that dialogue exploring hopes, fears and expectations from the outset can help churches to lay the foundations for future trust and commitment. It argues that work done on understanding and improving relationships will be more effective than the best-laid plan or theological argument.
