“Made in the image of God, we are relational beings. One can say that we are our relationships! Pastoral ministry occurs within and is determined by specific relationships, for it depends on the relational ties that empower its effectiveness: one’s relationships with one’s self, with God, with others, and one’s relationship with nature. Furthermore, health, wholeness, and holiness are found in these relationships. I see my call as educating and empowering seminarians and clergy to redefine their core relationships so that they can support and guide individuals, families, and congregations to redefine their ways of being in the world.”
