Drawing from a variety of sources, this Little Book addresses how we can communicate more effectively, and how we can lead others to do the same.
The literal definition of communication is "to make common." It shares a root with words we know well in congregational life: community and communion. At the heart of learning to live in common is the practice of speaking the truth in love: being honest and direct, fostering trust, and learning how to listen.
This series of Little Books of Leadership is designed to foster conversations within congregations around certain principles and practices that nurture community and growth in the ongoing life of the church.
