Helping a community of faith 're-vision' its personal and collective narratives is one of the greatest leadership challenges of the age. In Finding Our Story, Larry Golemon, lead researcher of the Alban Institute's Narrative Leadership in Ministry project, has assembled essays by congregational consultants who use the power of story to help congregations heal, strengthen, and reinvent themselves. These consultants describe how narrative therapy works, explore its promise and its challenges, and share the practical wisdom of their own experiences along with their favorite models of narrative change to show how congregations can be transformed by reauthoring the operative stories they live by.
Rev. Dr. Larry A. Golemon, an ordained Presbyterian minister, is a research associate for the Alban Institute. He is a regular consultant in seminary education and recently directed the Ecumenical Project at Virginia Theological Seminary. Prior to joining the Alban staff, Larry served on the research team of the Carnegie Foundation's Clergy Education study, published as Educating Clergy: Teaching Practices and Pastoral Imaginatio
