Contemporary Issues Foretaste: Leadership for the Missional Church is written by our very own Rev. Paul M. Dietterich. We have too often missed the point that it is the community of faith, the church, that is called to be a sign, instrument, and in particular a foretaste of the reign of God. So, what would an appetizer of God's coming reign look like anyway? The focus of this book is not only on what a church does but how it goes about doing what it does. To join on Zoom (link).
