Synopsis

Chaplaincy: A Ministry of Presence by Matt Sanders

At the heart of the role of chaplaincy is PRESENCE. This manual, designed for new chaplains, explores four dimensions of presence: (1) As the chaplain is present to him/herself with compassion and awareness, and (2) is present to The Presence with sensitivity and authenticity, he/she then (3) moves outward to others with simple, skillful means to help lighten their loads in life, and (4) helps others to connect more deeply to The Presence in ways that serve their highest good. This is part training manual, part memoir, part prayer book, and part self-care handbook. The author provides practical suggestions for pastoral support, and prayer with others, offers bits of wisdom to apply in one's ministry, and uses stories from his pastoral work in detention and hospital ministries to provide concrete examples of ways to apply these ideas. Additionally, this book is meant to help the chaplain nurture his/her own soul through self-care and prayer.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.

My horizons have been broadened by some of the books I have been lucky to review and I expect it to be no different in the future.
