More than anything else people in pain long to be in the presence of a person of faith. While sound pastoral skills are essential, our spiritual nurture and faith formation adds a dimension that can be transformative. The Reverend Sarah Berlin will lead the group in her approach to Pastoral Care that emphasizes our need to be grounded in prayer and the development of a rich relationship with God. The newly reorganized Pastoral Care Ministry - Share the Care - will be using Sarah’s book, Contemplative Compassion: Creating a Culture of Care in Faith Communities.
No pre-reading is necessary; books will be available for purchase at the orientation. The orientation will be followed by a 5 week book study with Canon Katie at 7 pm on Wednesday nights, beginning January 17.
