Rector Transitions is the only book about Episcopal church transitions written from a lay leader's perspective. It is an invaluable, practical, and Spirit-guided road map that will help you to discern God's vision for your church and to find and establish a strong partnership with the new rector who will join you. With a foreword by The Right Reverend Frank Griswold, 25th Presiding Bishop of The Episcopal Church, this book is a call to spiritual leadership and discernment.
(This is the black & white edition.) When Peter Kreitler discovered a stack of neatly preserved letters from his grandfather to his mother, he realized how much the advice they contained had shaped his wonderful mom. The discovery also got him thinking about the letters he had saved since his ordination to the priesthood in 1970. At the heart of Dear Father Peter is a selection of those letters charting the many stages of Kreitler’s almost five-decade career as a priest and environmental advocate.
