Additional Information

Lillian Daniel shares how her congregation re-appropriated the practice of testimony one Lenten season, a practice that would eventually revitalize their worship and transform their congregational culture. The experience strengthened lay leadership, fostered more intimate community, and drew the congregation closer to God. The book features the testimonies worshipers heard and reflections from both those who spoke and those who listened to these stories about God at work in the world.

As you read this book, be thinking "how could I apply this in my church?" (or business meetings, or...). Daniel shares how the practice of testimony evolved in the congregation she led, and her honesty was encouraging that she didn't claim that her and the leadership mapped out exactly what would work or wouldn't.

Prior to reading this book we have already implemented some of the ideas, and have developed others, but this book has helped to firm up the commitment to the need for testimony as well as bring up some potential pitfalls that might require some additional thought.

I have some fairly strong differences of opinions theologically and socially than the author, but that does not... Read more
How is a congregation shaped as its members share their stories in worship? And how does telling one's story shape that person's faith? These are the questions that lie at the heart of Tell it Like it is: Reclaiming the Practice of Testimony, by Lillian Daniels. Daniels tells the story of the practice of testimony within the congregation she was leading, a practice which became an important aspect of their worship and, like a stone thrown into still water, its effects rippled through the congregation.

Daniels led a congregation within the United Church of Christ (UCC), a faith tradition that she describes as being less-acquainted with having its members share their personal stories of faith than other traditions. As her congregation began its experiment with testimony they believed that they were recapturing a practice described in a number of places in the Bible. While there are varied accounts of testimony in the Bible they are consistent in this: "People of faith are... Read more
As a second year seminarian, I loved Daniel's fresh approach to testimony. THose in the UCC and other mianline denominations have stepped away from testimony, viewing it as an outdated tradition. Daniel reminds the reader of the importance and transforming power of our individual stories.
