Publisher's Description

Ronald W. Richardson helps us to understand how congregations function emotionally. Without being simplistic, he gives clear directions on how to improve their quality of life together and function more effectively in achieving mission goals. This book offers:

A theory about human behavior that will aid understanding of how things can get out of control in the human community of the church;

A practical set of leadership ideas and behaviors;

Guidelines for how to behave in the midst of upsetting and conflictual circumstances;

Personal steps that leaders in the church can take to become more positive forces for healing and cooperation.

Editorial Reviews

"Every congregation that has struggled to maintain a balance between individuality and togetherness, closeness and distance, unity and difference, and every leader who has determined to stay out of the emotional muddles of congregational life will find help in this book." --Herbert Anderson, professor emeritus, Catholic Theological Union

"This is an important book for pastor and congregations. Richardson has framed the book in a way that lends itself to discussion, and through questions at the end of the chapters, guides those reading or discussing the material to in-depth examination." --Jim Wyrtzen, former president, Osher Institute
