Chapter 11: Start With Why
Parish Renewal with Tim Glemkowski • 3m 32s
If we are going to cast a vision for our parish, we have to start with the “why”. Tim notes that the initial battle your parish will have to fight will be to communicate and drive home answers to questions like “What is the purpose of the Church?”, “Why does our parish exist?”, and “Why am I Catholic?”. If the people in your pews can answer this, you have cast the vision that will launch you into renewal.

Chapter 13: Communicating a Vision
Once you have the parish’s vision established, it must be communicated. Others have to see the point and the goal alongside you. Otherwise, it will never fully come to pass.
Chapter 14: Introduction
This chapter introduces the section on building a clear path to discipleship. Tim reminds us that this is our core identity as a Church, so we strategize on how to accomplish it.
