Item description for Creative Perserverance: Sustaining Life-Giving Ministry in Today's Church by Gill Goulding...
Overview A highly topical book bringing together hope and insights with people who have experienced abuse within the church. How can today's church workers maintain their life-giving ministry when headlines around the world are focused on abuse and culpability of a small minority within their ranks? What do you do when, as a priest, lay minister or educator, the going becomes unbearable? These are the questions that led Gill Goulding to speak to men and women, lay and religious, working in various aspects of ministry in Canada, the US, Ireland and the UK. While these issues often result in division and hostility, Goulding has produced a highly topical book showing the impact of abuse at every level. She makes practical suggestions for developing a creative approach to persevering that brings together insights from her own interviews with people who have experienced abuse of some form or another within the church and the results of her own theological research into suffering, perseverance, and eventually, empowerment.
