8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Taquiena Boston on November 13, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is one of the top 10 resources on leading multiracial/multicultural congregations for religious leaders. Rev. Jacqueline J. Lewis is herself a leader of a vibrant, dynamic congregation in the East Village/NYC where she carries on the legacy of Rev Gordon Dragt whose story of transformative ministry she describes in The Power of Stories. Each of the ministers profiled in The Power of Stories has a story of race, class and culture that has inspired their inclusive, multicultural ministries. There are no cookie-cutter, one-size fits all ministries in this book. The stories provide multiple paths and describes the leadership characteristics and congregational cultures that promote and support welcome and inclusion for people of diverse races and ethnicities, class statuses, and genders. Lay leaders will also find the book useful in identifying leadership qualities of ministers and the cultural characteristics of congregations that create living inclusive, multicultural community. If you're looking for a checklist, this is not the book for you. But if you want a book that provides inspiration and direction for creating a vision for inclusive, multicultural ministries, use The Power of Stories to ignite this work in your congregation.
