Coming to Consensus

A Case Study for the Churches

By Jill Tabart

The author relates the experience of the Uniting Church in Australia in moving to the use of the consensus method in making decisions, from the birth of the idea to the model used currently, a process of several years during which constant evaluation aided continuous improvement. Coming to Consensus is a resource for church councils at every level as they seek an authentically Christian method for discussing contested issues and discerning ways to move forward together. Jill Tabart was an architect of the consensus procedures used by the Uniting Church in Australia, serving as president of the national assembly of her church at the time the procedures were introduced.
