Pastors Need Care Too
As a pastor for over 20 years, what initially drew me to story work was my recognition that I needed a place to be seen and cared for, just as those I pastored needed me to see and care for them. The responsibilities of ministry can be isolating at best, and crushing all too often.
I have a fierce devotion to offering care for pastors, and my background as both a pastor and narrative trauma practitioner gives me a unique ability to create a safe space for pastors to process both current struggles and past stories of heartache.
I encourage pastors interested in pursuing story work with me to ask their church to cover the cost of this care as a means of investing in their well being and their spiritual and emotional health.
"For when we are harassed by poverty, saddened by bereavement, ill and in pain, let good people visit us - people who can not only rejoice with those that rejoice, but weep with those that weep, and know how to give profitable counsel and how to win us to express our own feelings in conversation."
