Item description for Whatever You Do for the Least of These: Ministering to Ill and Dying Children and Their Families by Patricia D. Fosarelli...
Overview Whatever You Do to the Least of These is one of the few books available for pastoral workers called upon to represent their churches at the bedsides of ill and dying children and adolescents. It introduces pastoral visitors, both ordained and non-ordained, to the main issues confronting children and adolescents of different ages when they are faced with illness, injury, or dying. It also highlights the issues faced by parents and siblings in these same circumstances.
Publishers Description Dr. Fosarelli explains it very well in her Introduction: "There is a need for a book of this type because there is so very little available for pastoral visitors (ordained or lay) who may be called to represent their churches at the bedsides of children and adolescents....We do not minister mosteffectively unless we meet children and their families 'whare they are' and to do that well, we need to know something about the emotional and spiritual developmental stages of children (and their families) in health and disease." Includes suggested prayers and prayer services.
