A Book I forgot to Mention
This is very short, highly practical guide book to the practice of visiting the sick. I found it quite helpful and would give it to anyone joining a pastoral care team as a resource for developing good pastoral practice.
When I first read it, I thought it rather assumed that all ministers are the same and they all believe that it is their primary function to visit whether they like it or not! I may have been a little unfair on it as I read as a result. But overall I found it informative and thoughtful even if I don't agree with all the underlying assumptions it makes.
Worth an hour of your time I'd say.
It is part of a series of short books called Ministering the Master's Way.
