Sharing Leadership: A United Church of Christ Way of Being in Community (Paperback)
"Sarah's ability to construct a future built on the commitments of our past makes this book an essential read for those who follow the voice of our still-speaking God." --John C. Dorhauer, General Minister and President, United Church of Christ
In a world that celebrates individual charisma and personal platform, how can the United Church of Christ's ethos of shared leadership provide a countercultural message? The structure and well-being of the United Church of Christ (UCC) depends upon shared leadership: between ministers and congregations, between congregations, between believers with diverse life experiences, across regions with varied histories. That quality of collaboration is often understated, yet the ethos of shared leadership may be one of the UCC's greatest gifts to a secular world that is increasingly narrated by division and platform.
