"In my consulting and training work, I am continually impressed by the high-quality people I meet who have chosen the profession of volunteer program management. ... All have a sincere desire to manage their programs for the maximum benefit of both their volunteers and their organizations. ... to do so is often a delicate balancing act between the needs of the volunteer, the staff, and the clients of the organization. To recruit and retain workers who are not motivated by the need for a paycheck takes special sensitivity and skill". -- Foreword to the Revised Edition.

"When all is said and done, however, there are only two, not forty-four, ways to increase attendance in any congregation. One is to increase the frequency of attendance of those who are now attending. .... The second approach is to reach more people. .... Many of the suggestions in this book are designed to increase the frequency of attendance. Others are designed to attract first-time visitors and a few are included to increase the probability that first-time visitors will return the following Sunday". -- Intro., p. 14, 15.

"[A] book of daily devotions for Lent by George Morrison with weekly group studies by Doug Hodgkinson".
"In the summer of 1983 a rare privilege comes to Canada and the Canadian churches. The Sixth Assembly of the World Council of Churches will convene in Vancouver. Its theme will be 'Jesus Christ - The Life of the World'. Delegates from every corner of the world have contributed to shaping its agenda. Many of those delegates will acclimatize to the Canadian scene by coming to stay in selected communities and homes, to savour our way of life for a few days before the Assembly. A broader-based preparation for delegates, however, is a Bible study program prepared in Geneva on the Assembly theme, subtitled 'Images of Life'. This Lenten Study is a parallel program, prepared to help Canadians prepare within our own cultural context for the impact of the WCC gathering". -- Intro., p. [5].
Contents: Introduction: part I : daily readings -- 46 [daily readings] -- Introduction: part II : group study guide -- [6 guides] -- Appendix: Issues for the Sixth Assembly of the World Council of Churches -- Index -- About the authors.
Author Dr. George Morrison is a United Church of Canada minister and Doug Hodgkinson is an Anglican Church of Canada priest.

"[By] Reginald Hollis".
"The very essence of living the Christian life, of being a Christian, is our relationship with Jesus. We are to be related to him as integrally as a branch is connected to a tree. We are part of him in the way that a hand or foot is part of a body. .... In this series of meditations on the Lord's Prayer, the Sermon on the Mount, and the Ten Commandments, we are looking at the two themes of our relationship with [Jesus Christ] and our relationships with one another. The prayer which begins with our relationship with 'our Father' and his will, ends with our forgiveness of one another. In any case, it is clear from the beginning that it is 'our Father' and not 'my Father'. True prayer can never grow out os a religion of individualism. The Sermon on the Mount is a call to the life which grows out of a relationship with Jesus. It calls for complete integrity in our response to God. .... To include the Ten Commandments in a book about abiding in Christ may at first sound strange. The commandments are the old law, the ethic of the Old Testament. Although the 'new law' of the Sermon on the Mount takes us further, the old foundation still stands. Again the dual relation to God and neighbour is clear. The first four commandments speak of a relationship with the one God who is our creator. The other six deal with relationship with parents and neighbours and the whole business of living together in society. .... Meditations on Scripture should lead us to prayer. The prayers at the end of each meditation are not blank verse. They are set out in line form to mark out separate thoughts. The prayers collect up the thoughts of the meditations, but they are not offered primarily as prayers to be used. Just as the meditations are meant to stimulate personal meditation, so the purpose of the prayers is to lead the individual to pray". -- Intro.

"[B]y Don Whiteside (sin a paw) Ph.D."
"In Canada there are five major problems with the usual 'professional bibliography' about Aboriginal People'. First, in Canada, a large number of studies and reports are mimeographed and become 'lost'. The second problem is that while a large amount of analytical material about Aboriginal relations in Canada is found in newspaper articles they are usually omitted from 'professional' bibliographies, as are references which specifically relate to the philosophy and acts of resistance by Aboriginal People. A fourth problem, and in many ways the most important, is that the thoughts of aboriginal people are not widely disseminated because their speeches at conferences, and their reports, tend to be mimeographed, and as was previously noted, these have a very limited distribution. The fifth major problem is that material about Aboriginal People in other countries is usually omitted from consideration. This bibliography, while it contains a fair sampling of the major published works, emphasizes unpublished speeches, reports, newspaper articles. This bibliography also emphasizes the works of Aboriginal People ... and includes a section on the philosophy of Indian resistance as well as a section on Aboriginals in other than North American countries. .... It is anticipated that additional volumes will be published periodically". -- Intro.

"In this report -- more accurately a 'working paper' -- I make proposals for the next stage of development of the Advisory Council on Missionary Strategy. Although I take full and personal responsibility for the proposals, I want to acknowledge with great gratitude the counsel and help given by a number of colleagues. .... To my thanks, let me add a few preliminary comments. First, these proposals are complementary to others which deal specifically with the Executive Officer's office and staff. .... The fact that the Executive Officer serves two bodies, and that separate groups of interest are involved, should however be kept in mind. A number of suggestions have been made, for example, which really relate to the Lambeth Consultative Body rather than the ACMS. .... Second, there have been -- indeed there still are -- some troubling misconceptions about my own office, and about the ACMS. I mention now four of these, because I think it is useful to clear away as much of the underbrush as possible before we tackle the main issues. The first has to do with 'authority' or 'power' of the ACMS and its Executive Officer. As I wrote to Archbishop Fisher in 1959, when we were exploring all this, it is essential in my view, that the Executive Officer have no constitutional or coercive authority. .... A second apprehension is related to this -- it has to do with money. .... Then, third, there has been a tendency to think of the ACMS as a means by which something is to be done for somebody else. .... Finally (and no doubt in large part because membership of the ACMS is by churches), there had been a measure of apprehension lest it represent a decision by the Anglican Communion against the 'society' principle of missionary support. .... So much by way of clearing the ground. Now I should like to speak about the four main principles which seem to me to be the determining elements in any planning for the ACMS". -- Intro.
