Washington addresses two serious questions that concern pastors: How do pastors and leaders confront the imminent death of their congregations and move quickly enough to seek renewal? How might a church develop in spite of faithful people who cling to their "holy" past? Offering "no pat plan in ten easy lessons," he talks about the importance of prayer discipline, dependence on the Holy Spirit for guidance, and helping members grow in discipleship. His ideas include a Vision Group for open forum discussion, sharing, and program planning. Plus a Lay-Lib! plan for involving pew-sitters in ministry.

As society diversifies, local churches find themselves interacting with people from every tribe and tongue. But not every church is equipped to handle the realities of ethnic and racial diversity in its congregational life. Sociologist George Yancey's pioneering research on multi-racial churches offers key principles for church leaders wanting to minister to people from a variety of racial and cultural backgrounds. Insights from real-life congregations provide concrete examples of how churches can welcome people of all heritages, giving them a sense of ownership and partnership in the life of the church.
