Well-Tested Wisdom Jul 11, 2003
Sacred Acts, Holy Change is Eric Law's fourth book (the three prior books are The Wolf Shall Dwell with the Lamb, The Bush Was Blazing But Not Consumed, and Inclusion). The emphases in all four books are on embracing diversity, encouraging respectful dialogue, and facilitating deep-rooted transformation.
This book is divided into two sections. The first section explores issues of diversity, organizational culture, and transformation processes. The second section describes in detail Law's "Process for Planned Change." The book is filled with vivid examples and stories, deep theological reflection, and practical insight.
Although Law's primary concerns surround multicultural issues, the process can also be applied to any type of congregational transformation: declining membership, reaching a growth plateau, a congregation-wide long-range planning and renewal process, or any situation where the congregation seem "stuck."
The process references material from Law's earlier three books, so it is helpful if you have them as well. You should probably read at least one of Law's earlier books before moving on to Sacred Acts, Holy Change. Wolf/Lamb focuses on multiculturalism and a process for Bible study. Bush focuses on dialogue and incorporating liturgy into the dialogue process. Inclusion introduces the concept of a "grace margin" between unchallenging safety and fearful conflict.
Law is an Episcopal priest and highly-regarded consultant on issues of multicultural leadership and organizational development. His ideas have developed through his work with over 75 congregations.
