Rebuilt Resources: Chapter 1 Church is Not Easy

One complex reality . . .

—Second Vatican Council

Use the following discussion and reflection questions with chapter 1 of Rebuilt:

  1. Read through the list of ten mistakes Fr. Michael and Tom Corcoran made at the Church of the Nativity. Which of these could also apply to the work that you’ve done and why?
  2. Create your own top ten list of mistakes. Propose some reasons why you think you got it wrong.
  3. Look at yourself as a leader of your parish or parish ministry. Which one or two leadership mistakes from Fr. Michael’s list do you find yourself making? Give some examples.
