Old Wine in New Skins: Centering Prayer and Systems Theory: Congregational Leadership for the Next Millennium

by Paul David Lawson
 

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Lawson, an Episcopal priest at St. Cross by the Sea in Hermosa Beach, CA, has written a surprising but ultimately insightful hybrid of two genres: the systems theory study and the prayer manual. He asserts that the daily meditative practice of Centering Prayer, together with an informed understanding of how institutional structures work, can help clergy and congregations deal with stress and conflicting wishes constructively. It may be difficult for most congregations to attain the complex self-awareness demanded here, much less to achieve Centering Prayer, but Lawson's small book ought to help many congregations on their way. For most collections. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
