"This book is about the stewardship of the congregation: how people care for, respond to, and manage their life together. It is about holding in trust the well-being of the congregation. The health of a congregation involves the stewardship of the congregation as a unit in itself. .... To talk about a healthy congregation is to talk about a congregation from an organic perspective. Only organisms can be said to be healthy or diseased." -- Preface 1996.
"Steinke takes readers into a deeper exploration of congregations as emotional systems. He outlines the factors that put congregations at risk for anxiety and conflict, ten principles of health, how congregations can adopt new ways of dealing with stress and anxiety, and how spiritually and emotionally healthy leaders influence the emotional system". -- back cover.

"The presence of anxiety in the church is a given. That's life. .... It is the premise of this book that we need to pay attention to and work through the presence of anxious forces in the church rather than be surprised and rendered helpless by them, or retreat from their distressing influences, or, worse yet, protect those who spread their disease among us. The goal of this study is to conceptualize emotional processes so that we can recognize them and, ultimately, let them serve rather than corrupt the purpose of our bonding together -- 'for the sake of ministry, for building up the body of Christ' (Ephesians 4:13) .... As a way to think about and work through emotional processes, we will examine 'family systems' or 'systems theory'. .... The book is a mix of theory and story. It begins heavily with theory which progressively lightens as the stories appear. I recommend that readers acquaint themselves with the theory before turning to the lived events". -- Preface 1993.

Notes
"[By] Laurel Arthur Burton".
Bibliography: p. [92]-94.
In this book the author explores three pastoral paradigms. "Pastors who operate according to a Traditional paradigm, try to return things to 'the way they were'. The goal is safety, the path is right doing, and the role of the pastor is surrogate parent. The Individualistic pastor, valuing innovation, encourages autonomy. 'To thine own self be true'. The Negotiating pastor's style is collaborative and flexible. Working through differences toward convenanted relationship, this pastor values both clarity of role and shared responsibility. When we are aware of the paradigms from which we operate, we'll be able to work more effectively with those who don't share them. Joining family systems and theological understandings. Burton's insights speak helpfully to dilemmas in pastoral care and congregational conflict". -- inside front cover.
Contents: Foreword / Larry C. Hodapp -- Preface dated Boston, Massachusetts, Advent 1988 -- Acknowledgements -- Introduction -- The Paradigm of Tradition -- The Paradigm of Individualism -- The Negotiating Paradigm -- Paradigms and Ministry -- Process and Ministry: A Working Proposal -- Bibliography.
