I Like Being in Parish Ministry: Pastoral CouncilPraise for “I Like Being in Parish Ministry: Pastoral Council”

The approach found here is friendly, almost folksy, arising from the personal experiences of people responding to the question: “Why do you like being on pastoral council?” The eight short chapters address the purpose of councils, the meaning of consultation, representation and spirituality, together with practical matters such as selecting councillors and running meetings well. Each chapter concludes with questions for reflection and a short prayer. I highly recommend it for those currently engaged in the work of pastoral councils or for those who might be considering it.
