Great Ideas from Great Parishes

"In the life of a parish, just as in our own lives, there are seasons; a truly vibrant Christian community recognizes and celebrates God's presence in all times and in all peoples. Thus you will find here some ways to celebrate baptisms and funerals; to walk with teenagers and the elderly; to care for injured humanity and to care for God's earth; to teach and to learn; to create, share, and preserve."
--From the Introduction

The ideas are organized around seven themes that must be a part of every parish community and are taken from rural, urban and suburban parishes across the country. Following each detailed description is a set of basic guidelines to help readers implement the idea in their communities.
