Session On Spirituality, Self-Care Planned At Emory
The Emory Center for Pastoral Services invites clergy, caregivers and lay people to a one-day symposium on the ever-growing need for ministers and congregations to find a balance between ministry and restor "feeding the sheep" versus "resting beside the still waters."
The principal speakers, Roberta Bondi and William Mallard, together taught for more than two decades a popular course on the history of Christianity at Emorys Candler School of Theology. They are known for their lively interaction and breadth of knowledge of early Christianity and spiritual practice.
The Charles V. Gerkin Pastoral Care Symposium, begun in 1979 and sponsored by the Emory Center for Pastoral Services and its affiliates (Crawford Long Hospital, Emory University Hospital, The Emory Clinic, Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston, Wesley Woods Center of Emory University and the Shepherd Center), gives ministers and laypeople the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge pastoral care from respected practitioners and researchers. In 1993 the symposium was named in honor of Gerkin, Parker Professor of Pastoral Theology Emeritus at Candler, to recognize his leadership in pastoral counseling, care and education.
