Riassunto: It is currently fashionable to declare that the Episcopal Church is dying. Few people can be found who will say that the church is vibrant and alive except in a few "megachurches," parishes good at letting their light shine. Yet there are many excellent parishes in the Episcopal Church. This book is the result of a study of six of them. The six vary in size, from 33 to 680 members; budget, from $26.500 to $289,000; style, from staid traditional to exuberant liberal; and location, South Carolina to Maine. Few people believed when the study began that these parishes would share any common characteristics. Yet the study revealed extraordinary similarities, area of common practice so consistent that they may apply to 90 percent of the Episcopal churches in this country. The study reveals three constants. First, the basics of the faith are taught and lived out in each church community in much the same way. Second, each parish or mission has a primary focus for the common life of their community. Third, each congregation is led by a highly skilled priest who provides the key leadership. Author Stebinger is rector of Christ Episcopal Church in Bethany, Connecticut. This book grew out of a sabbatical project in 1988.
