Community Rules: An Episcopal Manual
• Practical guide to church community life
Taking the approach of Michael Pollan's Food Rules, Community Rules seeks to distill the basics of "good church" into a set of memorable rules. Working with three sections, the authors draw on their years of combined experience in academic and church administration to identify the basic Christian principles that underpin Episcopal community and then apply them to actions and relationships. The book seeks to explicate the best personnel practices, as well as good governance and communal life together, alongside a framing within the Christian worldview. The goal is to provide a text that can serve as a guide for any and all members of a parish, most especially those who serve on vestries or as volunteers.
