The Weight of This Calling

How to Sustain Yourself in Ministry
  • By Linda Dunbar
Product Description
Arising out of the author's doctoral research into clergy stress, this is a wise and practical guide for ordained and lay ministers as they negotiate the challenges and complexities of modern ministry.

Drawing on first hand experiences, it offers in-depth knowledge of what triggers stress, from high expectations of the role to the lack of clear boundaries, church conflict, the fear of getting safeguarding wrong, isolation, lack of support or supervision, lack of privacy and much more. It suggests effective strategies both for preventing and managing stress, tools for developing resilience and sustaining wellbeing, and practical steps in proper self-care.

For individuals, congregations and church institutions seeking to address these concerns, it provides reflective exercises that will aid training and inform practice.
