PSYP 611F

Practices of Care in Congregations, Pastoral Care

Sharon Thornton

This is an introductory course in practices of care for ministry in congregations. While the primary focus of the course is pastoral ministry in local congregations the material will be relevant to other settings as well. This is not a course in pastoral therapy. The aim of this course is broader and at the same time limited. It begins with the assumption that practices of care are not exclusively one-to-one interactions that occur in the pastor’s office. Practices of care involve the whole community of faith as it is called to live out the “priesthood of all believers.” Practices of care depends on lay involvement. Throughout the course pastoral and prophetic points of view will be held together as we explore the needs of people in diverse communities today. This course fulfills the Psychology and Pastoral Theology requirement.
