We had a busy first two weeks in July (2016). We had two simultaneous programs (not including the completion of Summer 2016 CPE program, that will have graduation on July 18, 2016).
July 4-14, we had training of 5 as part of our Ministry Heartlink partnership. Bob, Celia, and Edgar worked with this from Bukal Life Care, along with Dr. Waldo Raposa, Mosendes, and others from Minister Heartlink.
July 2, 9, and 16, we had Hospital Visitation Program training at Christ Life Community Church. Training was led by Bob, Celia, and German. We are greatly appreciative of the hospitality of Ptr. Boni and team.
We used this presentation for our Ministry Heartlink Pastoral Care Skills Training… and will most likely continue to use it for our short and long courses.
It took something like 3 years, but finally finished the book, “The Art of Pastoral Care.” Bob and Celia developed the materials for Bukal Life Care in Baguio City, Philippines. Primarily, this is for “Intro to Pastoral Care” and “Clinical Pastoral
Orientation.” The follow-on book, The Dynamics of Pastoral
Care, when done, will add to this for those moving on into
Units 1-4 of Clinical Pastoral Education.
The goal in this (short) book was to find some balance points:
- Balance between Theology and Psychology
- Balance between Historical and Clinical Pastoral Care
Held Hospital Ministry Orientation at Christ Life Church on July 2nd… with 10 trainees. It was led by Bob, Celia, and German. Part 2 will be on July 9th, joined also by the trainees from Ministry Heartlink.
