Item description for Desert Hearts and Healing Fountains: Gaining Pastoral Vocational Clarity by Victor L. Hunter...
Overview This books helps pastors, novice and seasoned, to find the vocational refreshment and nourishing sources to understand their pastoral call with a clarity that remains compelling and empowering throughout their ministry.
Publishers Description New arrivals from the seminary come to the parish anticipating the sanctuary and are greeted by a system and set of priorities that threaten to stunt any growth toward vocational clarity and sense of calling. The rush soon conquers reflection, and appointments replace prayer. Pastors sometimes feel as if they are hopelessly lost in a desert with no hope of refreshment or finding a way out.Through ten theological and spiritual principles, Hunter leads pastors to vocational refreshment and to nourishing sources for understanding their pastoral call with a clarity that remains compelling and empowering throughout their ministry. He helps them to find the voice to speak the word of God in all of life's situations. The pastoral vocation -- listening to the voice that calls and finding our voice to speak to the many and varied circumstances of parish ministry, says Hunter, is to be who you truly are and to live what you truly do with holy conversation.
