    Only God, the Eternal One of whom scripture testifies, is worthy of worship. Ezek At the start of a new millennium, new cultural contexts create enormous challenges and tremendous opportunities for the public role of congregations as well as for the shape of congregational mission to and interaction with its community. This he says many times puts the congregation at the receiving end without realizing that before God we are all equal. He does a good job explaining the planning process with its individual parts.

    The standard practice of interim ministry is now three decades old and much has changed in our churches and culture during that time. At the start of a new millennium, new cultural contexts create enormous challenges and tremendous opportunities for the public role of congregations as well as for the shape of congregational mission to and interaction with its community. He indicates that the Holy Spirit creates, sustains, directs and propels. How might a DS live out the role of missional strategist in practical ways? It is worth reading and in it we may draw in principles that are of substance in planting and raising missionary local churches. Above all, he cautions the local churches to always remember that local congregations are branch offices of the kingdom where faith and love must prevail.

    Members are encouraged to understand the historical and literary context of Bible passages and are not required to interpret all of the language literally. Churches are keen on 'servant leadership'. There is a general awareness that racial and cultural prejudices and discrimination have existed in the church, and that our prayers and hymns should reflect the multiplicity of Christians in the world without the bias of one superior culture. In addition, the Community of Christ International Peace Award has been bestowed annually since except In addition, I think we need to grapple with the following questions: Are there congregations of different sizes that benefit more from interim ministry than others? Application: This book provided some missing pieces for me as a ministry design coach.

Almost to a person, leaders and trainers of intentional interim ministers agree that transitional ministry training needs to include opportunities to develop adaptive leaders—wise, mature, skilled counselors of the church.

Officially, the denomination states that "[t]he 'cause of Zion' expresses our commitment to pursuing God's kingdom through the establishment of Christ-centered communities in families, congregations, neighborhoods, cities, and throughout the world.

There is a general awareness that racial and cultural prejudices and discrimination have existed in the church, and that our prayers and hymns should reflect the multiplicity of Christians in the world without the bias of one superior culture.
