Ordained as a minister of the Methodist Church in Ireland in 1962, Good served in an inner city church in Belfast during a prolonged and tragic period of inter-communal violence and political instability. He facilitated dialog between separate paramilitary and political factions of the divided community and, together with Father Alec Reid, was awarded the Rene Cassin Human Rights Award in 2005 and the Gandhi Foundation International Peace Award in 2008.
