SC01 Ministry as Listening

“The human soul doesn’t want to be advised or fixed or saved. It simply wants to be witnessed — to be seen, heard and companioned exactly as it is.”

Parker Palmer, “The Gift of Presence”

SC01 Ministry as Listening is a spiritual care learning circle focusing on ministry of presence, pastoral visiting, prayer, counseling and spiritual direction, pastoral ethics and boundaries. It will be an opportunity to explore the power of truly listening. Register for SC01 Ministry as Listening
