who are not yet baptized? How does our congregation describe its
This book helps congregations learn how to make decisions
in healthy ways-focused on God's purposes, and growing in love and
truth. Sally Weaver Glick approaches congregational discernment as a
process of hearing and entering God's "song." Discernment is what we
do to distinguish between God's music and our own static and noise.
Good discernment says Weaver Glick, lets God's song "sing through us
and shape us, so that we can join in harmoniously, responding to God's
love and mercy."
In Tune with God works best in a
congregational study setting. It includes stories of real
congregations dealing with real issues; a wealth of practical tips for
conducting healthy discernment; a leader's guide; an outline for a one-
day retreat; and a creative series of "dialogues for two Fools for
Christ" that introduce the themes of each chapter.
