Product Description
In the midst of polarized communities and nations, religious leaders across the theological spectrum are seeking help with how to respond and lead in troubled times. The need for courage to speak out and act is ever-present, because every generation faces a new set of fears and troubles.

Author Ginger Gaines-Cirelli pastors a church in the heart of Washington DC, adjacent to the White House, which actively works to bring justice and help for marginalized communities, refugees and immigrants, and the endangered earth. She inspires and leads this work through preaching and by organizing and developing strong leaders, deeply rooted in a well-developed theological understanding. Pastoral warmth and compassion characterize the recommended practices.
Sacred Resistance addresses these questions, among others:
• When Christians see that something is wrong in our nation or community, how and when should we respond?
• When we see multiple instances of 'wrong', how do we choose which ones to address?
• How can pastors and other leaders faithfully take risks without violating relationships with the congregation or denomination?
• What historical, biblical, and theological safety nets can be relied on?
• How can we take care of ourselves and one another, so that our ministries and lives are sustained?

Our flocks are more divided and polarized on a number of issues than ever before. Well, it seems that way, but of course all generations have faced fears and troubles. As church leaders who shepherd our congregations, how do we begin to relate to concerns about the “wrongs” happening in the world today? Sacred Resistance helps us respond to questions about speaking out against injustice and taking appropriate action. Author Ginger Gaines-Cirelli, who pastors a church located adjacent to the White House in Washington D.C., provides a theologically sound framework for congregations to discern what to do—and when to do it as well. With warmth and compassion she offers practical advice on how to lead others through troubled times.
