Sharing Leadership: A United Church of Christ Way of Being in Community (Paperback)
"Sarah's ability to construct a future built on the commitments of our past makes this book an essential read for those who follow the voice of our still-speaking God." --John C. Dorhauer, General Minister and President, United Church of Christ
In a world that celebrates individual charisma and personal platform, how can the United Church of Christ's ethos of shared leadership provide a countercultural message? The structure and well-being of the United Church of Christ (UCC) depends upon shared leadership:
- between pastors and congregations,
- between churches and Associations/Conferences,
- between believers with diverse life experiences,
- across regions with varied histories.
That quality of collaboration is often understated, yet the ethos of shared leadership may be one of the UCC's greatest gifts to a secular world that is increasingly narrated by division and platform.
