Why Mentoring?I'm at the stage in my life when I want to invest time and energy in developing young ministers.
(1) Parker Palmer: To Know as We Are Known--A Spirituality of Education, (2) William Willimon: Calling and Character--Virtues of the Ordained Life, (3) Maria Harris: Fashion Me a People: Curriculum in the Church, (4) Patrick Slattery: Curriculum Development in the Postmodern Era, (5) James Fowler: Stages of Faith--The Psychology of Human Development and the Quest for Meaning. These texts have taught me to retain a distinctly pastoral identity while drawing upon interdisciplinary frameworks and social science practices for ministry.
