Product Description
The Care of Souls is a collection of essays and short reflections on the art of pastoral supervision in the clinical pastoral education (CPE) learning process. The essays focus on different aspects of supervisory theory, and are juxtaposed with reflections on the raw helplessness of both the patient and the chaplain, which can occur at the bedside. This collection highlights the critical importance of self-awareness, the inexact art of caring, and the hard necessity of listening to another person's pain. ""Logan's collection of writings pulls back the curtain to reveal perceptive insights into the art of pastoral supervision. These reflections showcase his years of experience as a creative and astute pastoral educator through the nimbleness of his intellect and depth of compassion for the human experience. Logan's work, which can read as monograph and meditation, is edifying and moving for aspiring and seasoned practitioners."" --Peggy Davis Gold, Department of Chaplain Services and Education, Duke University Hospital ""Clinical pastoral education is difficult to describe and hard to understand unless one has experienced the process. Logan Jones provides insight in The Care of Souls that will illuminate the path for students, clergy, and educators who are learning and teaching the art of spiritual care. He honors theories, sacred texts, and personal reflection as well as the mystery and chaos that can lead to transformed lives. It reflects his authenticity and care."" --Mary Ann Boothe, Supervisor, Department of Spiritual Care, WakeMed Health & Hospitals, Raleigh, North Carolina ""Logan Jones tells a good story. And he has a true gift for making complex theory accessible. In The Care of Souls, he draws first upon one talent, then another, so that the book's very structure supports his central tenet of pastoral supervision: it is about the integration of heart and head, of personal narrative with the skills and arts of spiritual care. Logan's life, as pastor and as educator, shines through."" --Jay Foster, Vice President of Spiritual Care, Chaplaincy, and Congregational Partnerships, Indiana University Health ""This book should be in the hands of everyone who seeks to minister and care for the soul of another. Jones presents both the complexity and simplicity of ministry to those in suffering. While bringing an understanding of how to care for another, he helps us to understand ourselves more fully. As I read Jones's insight in The Care of Souls, I found care for my own soul and you will too "" --Joel Ray, Vice President, Patient Care Services, and Chief Nursing Officer, UNC REX Healthcare Logan C. Jones is the director of Pastoral Care Services and is an ACPE certified educator at UNC REX Healthcare in Raleigh, North Carolina. Ordained in the Moravian Church, he is the author of two books of poetry, No Man's Land and Last Call.
