Deep Listening

Worship and Ministry

“Just as a midwife is there to care for the safe delivery of the baby while being aware of the care for the mother, an elder is there to care for the safe delivery of a ministry while being aware of the care for the minister.” Bob Schmitt, Deep Listening: Applying the Disciplines of an Elder to Pastoral Care

A 2001 volume of the Pastoral Care Newsletter focuses on the listening of elders in several stories and resources. Read the Deep Listening issue from PYM’s newly developed archive of nearly 20 years of Pastoral Care Newsletters.
