Item description for Practice What You Preach: Virtues, Ethics, and Power in the Lives of Pastoral Ministers and Their Congregations by S. J. Keenan, S.J. James F. Keenan & Joseph J. Kotva...

Overview
From the publisher: Calling for accountability, "Practice What You Preach" discusses ethical questions that arise in congregations and pastoral leadership. Formation of pastors, empowering leaders, resolving power struggles between clergy and laity-these and other critical pastoral issues are addressed by an ecumenical group of contributors. Divided into four parts: the way the churches train their pastors; the way their pastors live; the way communities worship; and the way communities behave, this collection identifies and offers positive solutions to areas where churches are often slow to change. Each essay begins with a case describing a typical problem-from wages to in-fighting-and then discusses what virtues or character traits might be developed to resolve the problem effectively.
