Father Tom Sweetser has set forth some practical ways in which parishes can live up to their call to become more fully the Body of Christ. These suggestions are born of experience. But we learn such things "in the doing," and it will take a lot of "doing" to see how well they work. The Church is at its best when its rituals and structures draw from the wisdom learned in practice, not in theory.-from the foreword by Bishop Ken Untener
