A Primer in Pastoral Care

Creative Pastoral Care and Counseling Series
  • By Jeanne Stevenson-Moessner
Product Description
Based on her twenty years of teaching and on her own experience in pastoral care, Jeanne Stevenson-Moessner has written a basic pastoral-care text to assist in the emotional and spiritual preparation of pastoral caregivers. Stevenson-Moessner expands on her key notion of pastoral care as seen through the interconnection and interplay of love of God, love of neighbor, and love of self. Her brief book is meant to engender "confidence and caring" in the initiate, and to assuage the fear and anxiety that naturally occur when one accompanies people in life-changing pain and travail. Through skilled use of the parables of the Good Samaritan and the Good Shepherd, along with stories from her own experience, Stevenson-Moessner imparts genuine wisdom and meaningful support to those who courageously dare to offer caregiving ministry in whatever situation or through whatever method or paradigm. Her work unfolds in six chapters:
1. Introduction: The One-Room Schoolhouse
2. Pointers and Precepts: The Grammar of Care
3. The Prism of Pastoral Care: Scripture Refracted
4. Paradigms in Pastoral Care: The Community as Classroom
5. The Open Classroom: Places of Care
6. Conclusion: An Alphabet of Grace
