Item description for The Heart and Soul of Parish Ministry (More Parish Ministry Resources) by Regina Coll...
Overview In The Heart and Soul of Parish Ministry, Regina Coll challenges parish ministers to look beyond their activity to the faith that motivates it, and to the ultimate aim of ministry: to foster faith in the people of God, to help people deepen their relationship with God, with one another, and with the rest of creation. To do this, Coll affirms, we need to incarnate our faith, to enflesh the doctrines, rituals, and symbols that define our faith - and help our brothers and sisters do the same. She offers reflections and suggestions that lead us to plumb the depths of our beliefs, including our imaging of God and Jesus, how we live the reality of grace, and our understanding of the church as sacrament. She also invites us to reflect more deeply on our spirituality as minister. The Heart and Soul of Parish Ministry provides deeper insights into the parish minister's reason for being. Anyone involved in parish ministry or formation for parish ministry should have it on their shelf and in their hands often.
Publishers Description Regina Coll offers theological foundations as well as practical suggestions about what is important in parish ministry: fostering faith, imaging God and Jesus, definitions of ministry, being human, being church, and the spirituality of the ministers. This book is ideal for veteran parish ministers and those in lay ministry training programs.
