Are you dissatisfied with the church, unsure of how to think about the Holy Spirit's power in light of the evil in our world, or wishing that worship engaged your imagination? In "Pass the Peace: A New Paradigm for Christian Community," Dr. Chet B. Gean translates Christian theology into meaningful practice. Pastors and laypersons are encouraged to: Apply spiritual practices and disciplines. Define and work with parish dynamics. Harness the power of the Holy Spirit. Unmask evil in the world. Engage imagination in worship. Transform grace into service. Dr. Gean, denominational leader and church consultant, calls for a new paradigm of church leadership and community involvement. His message embraces the mystical energy of God, transcending religious institutions and flowing freely into the world that we are called to serve. His is a call to peace; to the mystery of inner healing; to wholeness; and to our God, who alone loves in a manner unique and perfectly suited to each one of us. Gean discloses his love, respect, and solicitude for the church in "Pass the Peace."
