ECF Vital Practices is the online extension of Vestry Papers and is a brand new resource for Episcopal leaders. In addition to the Vestry Papers articles by epxerts and peers, ECF Vital Practices includes practical tools for parish leaders, a lively blog where readers can share ideas and experiences, examples of congregational practices, and live chats with leaders, teachers, authors, practioners, and more.
ECF Vital Practices is free and provides opportunities to create community among Episcopal leaders and foster learning about congregational issues not only among vestries and rectors, but also all lay people and clergy who lead congregations.
