Reviews - What do customers think about Calling Clergy: A Spiritual and Practical Guide Through the Search Process?
Excellent spiritual and practical advice Apr 15, 2010
This book is extremely helpful for the Episcopal (Anglican) search process. I read it cover to cover and then went to the web (address is in the book) to check the accompanying resources. They are equally helpful.
The description of the Spiritual Guide for the team is excellent. We patterned our spiritual guide after this. We also created a session "offering our gifts" based on the retreat that Geitz describes.
I was looking for something that could keep our Team firmly focused on the spiritual journey we are taking, and this book really helps do that.
