Attend to Stories: How to Florish in Ministry

English | September 25th, 2018 | ISBN: 1945935146 | 145 Pages | EPUB | 0.34 MB

This book is a contribution to the emerging literature on clergy flourishing. In the first three chapters, I examine how our personal stories, including our stories of pastoral identity, can thwart or fos- ter our flourishing in ministry. I propose a practice of story care through which we attend to our stories and revise them as needed to move toward greater well-being.

The fourth chapter provides an outline of my understanding of a Christian vision of flourishing. The fifth chapter examines spiritual practices that can contribute to our flourishing, offering a creative adaptation of John Wes- ley's General Rules, which were developed to assist in the spiritual formation of those in the early Methodist movement.
