New Resource for Rostered Leaders
Pastoral Ethics and Best Practices: A Guide to Caring Conversations (available for download, below):
Some of you may recall a Pastoral Ethics discussion booklet that the Ministry Committee of the synod produced a number of years back. It was the desire of Bishop Kusserow to update that resource. Pastor Heather Lubold, Pastor Jennifer McCurry, and Pastor Phil Gustafson were recruited to take on that task. These pastors worked diligently to compose something useful for our rostered leaders that would add to the existing resource, with topics such as “social media” that were not addressed in the first version. Attached you will find the completed copy. Please keep in mind that it is a discussion resource and offers helpful information, it is not meant to be construed as new directives from the synod. We hope you will find this booklet beneficial in your ministry.
