Item description for Created by God: Pastoral Care for All God's People by Peggy Way...
Overview "Well known for her powerful oratory contributions, Peggy Way has given us a wonderful written record of her wisdom that will become an enduring part of the pastoral theological tradition that she herself helped to build. She has long advocated for the pastoral gifts of the 'ordinary world of congregations,' the completely capable caregiving of the non-expert and the non-ordained. This book also persuasively shows the deeply theological angles of such ordinary life, from confronting finitude, suffering, and otherness to embracing joy and God's goodness."
Publishers Description Created by God is an introduction to pastoral care from a theological perspective. Author Peggy Wayargues toward a definition of pastoral care as bearing faithful witness to the joy of creation and the goodness of God. In ten cogent and compassionate essays, she introduces concepts of pastoral theology that will theologically ground congregations in, not only to doing care, but in being caring places. Each essay connects a practical theology of pastoral care with the ordinary world of congregations. Essays are organized into three ?movements?: theological anthropology, identity and community, and hope and possibilities, presenting a broad range of practice.
