A vital parish reaches beyond itself to make a difference in the world. This ground-breaking book offers innovative insights into the shared work of laity and the ordained in the "mission field" today. Msgr. James Gaston and Sr. Brenda Hermann draw from their extensive experience in the facilitation of and consultation with pastoral councils to present a clear understanding of "counsel in council" for the modern world. They explore the obstacles to effective pastoral leadership and offer practical guidelines for overcoming them. Rooted in the historical significance of true counsel for Church councils, this book outlines four spiritual methods available for pastoral councils. In addition, the authors examine the virtues of prudence, wisdom, counsel, and fortitude as essential virtues for an effective pastoral council. View sample pages. Paperback
