Author Myrlene Hamilton weaves together her love of ministry with her passion for fly fishing in this essential spiritual guide for all those called to pastoral ministry. These "fish stories" will give you a renewed appreciation for the essentials and even some of the finer points of pastoral ministry. An experienced pastor, Hamilton' charming and probing stories, such as "The Fine Art of Irritating Fish," "When the Fish Catches You," and "The Ones That Got Away," will lead you into the world of fly fishing and then into the familiar surroundings of your own ministry. If you're not already hooked, your congregants will soon find you pondering your own ministry down at the river.
