Reconciliation is one of the most beautiful and life-changing gifts that Jesus offers us—it is also one of the most misunderstood. Joy in Confession combines art therapy, scholarship, theology, and worship to create a powerful experience for learning about confession in the Episcopal Church.In this accessible, user-friendly workbook, author Hillary D. Raining provides compelling evidence of transformation for individuals and communities who embrace reconciliation as a spiritual practice. The workbook includes a robust toolbox for clergy, congregations, individuals, including insight on what to expect during confession, how to incorporate confession into the life of a congregation, and how to hear a confession. In addition, the workbook offers resources to tailor the program for weekly study sessions, a retreat, or a one-day workshop. The program has been tried and tested by congregations around the U.S., and their suggestions have been incorporated to make Joy in Confession a helpful resource for any setting.The Rite of Reconciliation holds a key to grace and an invitation from God to live with joy as a people of a resurrected hope-if we would but answer the call.
This book is an important work. The author reminds us, as non Roman Catholics, of the importance, and the necessity of confession, forgiveness, and reconciliation. It provides a helpful guide to clergy who will participate with others as their confessor. It is a thoughtful and holy work. Although I read it individually, Joy In Confession is well suited for group thinking, particularly during Lent and Advent.-Dennis Coleman, Amazon Review
