Table of Contents and Preface
This second volume in Judson Press's new "Living Church" series explores the nature of pastoral care and invites laity and clergy to become partners in this essentially human ministry. Beginning with the traditional core of pastoral care as a critical function of the church pastor, McMickle expands that core into a second circle of care—as the pastor equips and empowers church members to participate in caring for one another. Finally, McMickle throws open the doors of the church and challenges pastors, lay leaders, and church members alike to extend their ministries of pastoral care to the local community, through ministries of:
• Advocacy• Justice• Healthcare• Education• Service
A richly reflective and utterly practical resource, this volume deepens the church's understanding of pastoral care—and expands that compassionate and priestly ministry in the church and in the world.
