The Growing Church: Keys to Congregational Vitality, edited by Thom Belote, our February UU Growth Blog Book of the Month, is now available and ready to be shipped via the UUA Bookstore.
Here is an excerpt of a write up of the book from the UUA’s Tipsheet Blog by Donald Skinner:
A dozen ministers of some of the fastest-growing Unitarian Universalist congregations gathered in Louisville, Ky., in November 2007 at the UUA Growth Summit to share some common threads about their growth. Parts of those conversations have been gathered into a book, The Growing Church: Keys to Congregational Vitality, published by Skinner House this month. The book is available at the UUA Bookstore for $12.
Contributors to The Growing Church include the Revs. Ken Beldon, John Crestwell, Liz Lerner, UUA President Peter Morales, Christine Robinson, Victoria Safford, Michael Schuler, and Marilyn Sewell. The book features a foreword by Alice Mann of the Alban Institute, who facilitated the gathering in Louisville.
